Tembec has announced further production curtailments, with the latest affecting facilities in BC and Ontario.

The company confirmed plans to shut down its BC Elko and Canal Flats sawmill and planer plants for two weeks early next month, and in early November. These shutdowns will force the additional reduction in production at Tembec’s finger joint facility in Cranbrook, BC at the same time. A closure in central Canada, at the company’s mill in Cochrane, ON will last for five months, starting at the end of October.

Tembec cited a sluggish housing market as prompting the closures, which will affect roughly 600 people. The company announced a closure at its Matane mill last week.
