Canfor curtailing operations at Taylor pulp mill

Canfor says it will curtail operations at its pulp mill in Taylor from June 29 through August 5.

The company cited weak market conditions and short-term fibre constraints resulting from industry-wide sawmill curtailments in the B.C. Interior for its decision.

The curtailment will reduce Canfor Pulp’s production output by approximately 25,000 tonnes, the company said.

The news come on the heels of an announcement of a planned shut down of the Peace Valley OSB mill in Fort St. John earlier Thursday.
