Canfor to take one-week curtailments at six sawmills in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada

Posted April 22, 2009

Apr 22, 2009. /Lesprom Network/. Canfor Corporation announced that due to the continued poor softwood lumber markets, it will be taking one week curtailments at 6 sawmills in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada.

Commencing April 27, 2009, the operations at Rustad and Prince George sawmills will be curtailed, followed by Vavenby on May 4, Grande Prairie on May 11, and Quesnel and Houston beginning May 18. This will remove approximately 32 million board feet of SPF lumber production.

In addition, Canfor will also be taking summer shuts at all of its Canadian lumber operations, removing approximately 130 million board feet of lumber production in July and August.

Canfor is a leading integrated forest products company based in Vancouver, British Columbia with interests in BC, Alberta, Quebec, Washington state, and North and South Carolina. The Company produces the most softwood lumber in BC, while also producing oriented strand board, remanufactured lumber products and specialized wood products.
