Montreal, QC — Kruger Inc. announced that it will reduce the production at two of its Quebec paper mills. These production curtailments will be achieved by the shutdown of the Trois-Rivires mill, from October 28 to November 10 and the Brompton (Sherbrooke) mill from November 17 to December 1st. Total production reductions during these periods will amount to 25,000 metric tonnes of newsprint, 6,000 metric tonnes of supercalendered paper and 8,000 metric tonnes of coated paper.
These interruptions will affect 1,500 employees and result from the combined effects of the increase in value of the Canadian dollar and the continued increase in production costs, including manpower, fibre supplies and energy.
