July 26, 2019 – Canfor Pulp Products is extending the previously announced summer curtailment at its Taylor, BC bleached chemi-thermomechanical pulp (BCTMP) mill by a further five weeks to September 9, 2019.

The company made the announcement today in its Q2 2019 financial results presentation.

The previously announced curtailments at its Intercontinental and Northwood northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) mills in Prince George, BC, will end as scheduled in September.

Combined, the summer curtailments will reduce third-quarter pulp production by an estimated 75,000 tonnes of NBSK pulp and 50,000 tonnes of BCTMP, respectively.

Maintenance outages are also scheduled at the Prince George NBSK pulp mill and at the company’s paper mill in September 2019, with a projected 6,000 tonnes of reduced NBSK pulp production and 4,000 tonnes of reduced paper production, respectively.
