December 3, 2018 – West Fraser has announced it will implement temporary production curtailments over the holiday period at four of its British Columbia sawmills, just weeks after announcing a permanent curtailment at its Quesnel and Fraser Lake mills.

The company's operations in Chasm, 100 Mile House, Williams Lake and Chetwynd are all affected by the decision.

"Challenging lumber markets and high log costs coupled with log supply constraints have necessitated this difficult decision," says Ted Seraphim, CEO of West Fraser. 

The curtailments are expected to reduce SPF lumber production by approximately 25 million board feet in 2018.

West Fraser is a diversified wood products company producing lumber, LVL, MDF, plywood, pulp, newsprint, wood chips and energy with facilities in western Canada and the southern United States.
