April 15, 2019 – Domtar’s Espanola, Ontario mill is set to eliminate 70 jobs as part of a modernization project. 

Elliot Lake Today reports that the jobs will be eliminated through attrition and retirement. 

Bonny Skene, a spokesperson for Domtar, told the news outlet that the mill is simplifying its process in advance of larger upgrades over the next three years. 

As part of the modernization, Espanola will eliminate one of its two bleach plants and two of its five batch digesters during a two-week shutdown in May. The move is not expected to affect production volume.
