According to a report by Cornwall Seaway News, March 3 marked a meeting of Domtar officials and municipal government to determine the future of the company’s Cornwall site once the mill closes on March 31.
Cornwall Seaway News reported Richard Garneau, executive vice president of operations at Domtar, and Claude Belley, vice president of special projects as saying, “an asset recovery program is underway to determine what assets at the Cornwall mill can be used at other Domtar facilities. A study has been initiated to determine the value and potential best use for the site. This study is expected to be completed in the next four to six months. It will also outline various options available to the company. Should complete demolition and decommissioning be undertaken, this process would take two years.”
Domtar officials have confirmed the company’s commitment to honouring the collective agreement that is currently in place with Cornwall mill employees.
