Kruger temporarily suspends production at Corner Brook Pulp and Paper over steam issue

CANADA (From news reports) -- Corner Brook Pulp and Paper said Friday, April 5, that it was temporarily halting operations at its western Newfoundland mill.

In a brief statement, the company said repairs need to be made to the mill's steam distribution system.

The company said it was working with Newfoundland and Labrador government departments and that employee safety was its "top priority."

"[We] will take all necessary measures to ensure that all equipment is compliant with safety regulations, with the goal of resuming operations as quickly and as safely as possible," the statement said.

The company, a division of Montreal-based Kruger Inc., said it is "evaluating the scope and nature of corrective actions to be implemented."

Friday's move comes after a one-week shutdown in November, which Kruger blamed on "the difficult business environment in the newsprint sector."

About 300 workers were affected by that seven-day halt in production.
