16-day curtailment planned at West Fraser Cariboo Pulp and Paper due to forestry challenges

CANADA (From news reports) -- Operations at Cariboo Pulp and Paper will be curtailed for 16 days, affecting around 160 employees, beginning Saturday, Oct. 29.

Joyce Wagenaar, a corporate spokesperson for West Fraser Mills, said the curtailment is necessary to better align Cariboo Pulp and Paper's operating capacity with the available supply of wood chips.

"Timber supply and access has become an increasing challenge in British Columbia," Wagenaar said. "Infestation, wildfire, forest policy decisions and other considerations have resulted in fewer logs being processed in Interior sawmills, and therefore fewer wood chips and pulp logs are available as feedstock for B.C. pulp mills."

Cariboo Pulp and Paper is jointly owned between West Fraser and Mercer International.
