VANCOUVER, BC – Canfor Pulp Products announced that it will indefinitely curtail one production line at its Northwood facility in Prince George, BC due to the decline in availability of economic fibre in the northern BC region. The curtailment will result in the reduction of approximately 300,000 tonnes of market kraft pulp annually. …Kevin Edgson, CEO, Canfor Pulp said, “The persistent shortage of economic fibre, particularly in the Prince George region, has led to the closure or curtailment of a number of sawmills, which in turn has dramatically reduced the volume of chips available to meet the needs of our pulp operations.” …Canfor Pulp will continue to operate both lines at Northwood over the next few weeks, followed by an orderly wind-down process of one line at the beginning of the third quarter. This reduction in capacity will impact approximately 220 jobs across Canfor Pulp.
