TEXT SIZE bigger text smaller text

The last operating paper machine at Resolute Forest Products’ pulp and paper mill in Fort Frances, Ont., will shut down at the end of January, the company has announced. Kraft pulp production and one other paper machine had been shut down in late 2012, so this latest announcement leaves the mill in a state of indefinite shutdown.

CBC News reports that company president Richard Garneau said the paper machine will be kept ready for future operation.

The company also said it is looking for alternative products for the Fort Frances operation.
