Tembec will temporarily shut down two of its sawmills on December 1st.

Tembec will temporarily shut down two of its sawmills on December 1st.
The Barn, QC, and Cochrane, ON, sawmills have been negatively impacted by the countervailing and antidumping export duties imposed on softwood lumber by the United States. The low stud lumber prices combined with the considerable strengthening of the Canadian dollar have aggravated the situation.
Tembec expects to resume production in February at both mills, but possibly earlier at its Cochrane installation.

Together, the Barn and Cochrane mills produce some 260 million board feet of spruce, pine and fir (SPF) lumber, and their temporary shutdown will affect over 260 direct jobs.
