Tembec calls off temporary shutdown of B.C. pulp mill
SKOOKUMCHUCK, B.C.—Tembec has announced that it will not go ahead with the planned shutdown of its pulp mill in Skookumchuck, B.C., near Cranbrook. The two-week shutdown was scheduled for June 29, but has been called off due to some improvements in pulp prices and the $1 billion Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program, recently announced by the federal government.

PrintCan also reported last week that Tembec was planning to idle all its Northern Ontario and some B.C. sawmills in the coming weeks. No word yet on whether those closures will still take place.

Tembec has operations in Canada and France, and The Skookumchuck pulp mill can produce 650 metric tonnes of northern bleached softwood kraft pulp daily.
