Tolko’s Soda Creek Stud Mill Reduces Operations to Two Shifts
Williams Lake, British Columbia, Canada, 16 December 2008 -- Tolko Industries Ltd. announced that its Soda Creek Division in Williams Lake, British Columbia, will reduce operations from three to two shifts, effective 05 January 2009. With the previously announced holiday downtime, the last day of scheduled operation, subject to weather, for the affected shift is 22 December 2008.

The market-related curtailment will affect approximately 45 employees in the sawmill, fingerjoint operation, and planer, and production by 70 million board feet on an annual basis.

“It is especially difficult to make this type of announcement at this time of year,” said Ryan Oliver, plant manager, “and I regret the impact on our employees and their families.”

Plant management is working in cooperation with community resources to ensure assistance is available for affected employees, including transition planning workshops.
