Temiscaming, QC — Tembec announced last week a series of coordinated temporary market-related shutdowns at its sawmills located in Elko and Canal Flats, BC. The Elko sawmill and planer mills complex will close for a minimum of two weeks starting October 1, and the Canal Flats sawmill and planer mills will have a similar downtime starting October 15.
Tembec had previously announced a temporary shutdown at its Barn, QC, sawmill, to start October 8 and last for two weeks. There are additional shutdowns in Eastern Canada at facilities in Timmins and Kirkland Lake, ON, and La Sarre, QC.
“These shutdowns are due to a combination of factors,” said Dennis Rounsville, executive VP and president of Tembec’s Forest Products Group. These include the sharp decline in demand and prices for lumber and the impact of the high value of the Canadian dollar.”
