Tembec is restarting it Timmins sawmill for a period of eight weeks. Starting December 4, the facility will resume production in order to allow the existing raw log inventory currently sitting at the site to be converted into lumber.
The facility shut down in July, due to weak market conditions. Once the conversion of the log inventory is wrapped up, the mill will close once again, for an indefinite period.
“The lumber markets are presently extremely challenging and no improvement is expected for some time. While the sawmill will be reopened to convert the existing log inventory, it will be idled for an indefinite period thereafter, pending market recovery,” said Dennis Rounsville, executive vice president and president of Tembec’s Forest Products group.
