St. Marys Paper in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., has idled two of its three paper machines for inventory-related downtime and temporarily laid off about 60 workers, according to a report in the Sault Star. The production curtailment is expected to last one month.
The mill produces supercalendered paper for use in catalogs, magazines, and advertising inserts.
Mill production will be handled by paper machine #5, which can produce about 60% of the mill’s 240,000-tonne annual output, according to the Sault Star.
