Tembec will curtail operations at two of its Canadian kraft pulp mills due to a temporary wood fibre shortage.

Tembec will curtail operations at two of its Canadian kraft pulp mills due to a temporary wood fibre shortage.
The mills, which will be down for two weeks, are located in Marathon and Smooth Rock Falls, ON.
The reduction is estimated to be 15,000 MT of pulp production, equivalent to approximately 10% of the company’s quarterly Canadian kraft production.
Wood supplies to the pulp and paper industry, particularly in Eastern Canada, have been seriously impacted by the U.S. countervail duties on lumber exported to the U.S.
“We are well sold out at all of our pulp mills, so the timing of this shortage is unfortunate” said T. P. Kavanagh, President of the Tembec Pulp & Paper Group. “We are currently working on contingency arrangements to mitigate any potential supply interruptions for our customers.”
