Thunder Bay, ON — Bowater’s decision to close its groundwood mill in Thunder Bay will culminate in the loss of 50 jobs.
The mill closed its doors on August 20th, after a series of scale-back moves that no longer made continued operation a viable option. In June 2003, the mill shut down its PM3, which left the company will an overstock of pulping capacity. At the time other facets of the operation absorbed the excess material. However, recent alterations in product mix meant the extra capacity was no longer needed. The mill is closed for an indefinite period of time.
