The impact of stronger pricing for pulp and paper, combined with a relatively stable Canadian dollar helped to position the company favourably, compared to the fourth quarter of 2007, when a net income of $12.1 million on sales of $215.1 million were recorded.

Canfor has been subject to higher manufacturing costs, however, in the order of an increase of 4% per unit. Lower production and sales volumes were the results of a fire at the company’s Prince George Pulp and Paper mill.
