Fibrek Inc. has announced that the scheduled shutdown at its Fairmont, W.V., mill for the replacement of two decker drums and annual maintenance will be extended in order to respond to current market conditions. The shutdown begins on September 12, and will continue for four weeks, instead of the planned two weeks.

Fibrek says the recycled kraft pulp market continues to be negatively impacted by wastepaper prices, which remain very high.

Advertisment

The four-week shutdown will remove a total of approximately 15,000 tonnes of RBK pulp from production, including scheduled outages. The Fairmont mill produces approximately 215,000 tonnes of RBK pulp annually.

Fibrek is a producer and marketer of high-quality virgin and recycled kraft pulp. The company operates three mills, located in Saint-Félicien, Qué., Fairmont, W.V., and Menominee, Mich.
