Montreal, QC — Last week, Kruger announced a production shutdown of its supercalendered paper machine at the Wayagamack Mill in Trois-Rivires, QC. The shutdown will be effective on September 2, 2007, and last for an indefinite period of time.
The company regrets having to make such a decision, said Jean Majeau, VP, corporate affairs for Kruger Inc. Unfortunately, the current market conditions, the high value of the Canadian dollar and the continuous increase in production costs, including labour, energy and fiber supplies, leave us no alternative.
The shutdown will affect approximately 140 employees. Annual production for this paper machine is 65,000 tonnes.
