LOS ANGELES, CA — The ranks of North American pulp and paper mills continue to become thinner as large companies reduce excess capacity and smaller producers go out of business, said a Forestweb survey of shutdown announcements. The result of closures has been a reduction of 3 million tons of pulp and paper and the loss of about 6000 jobs in 2000 alone. Additional cuts in allied sectors like converting and wood products add to the labour reductions, noted Forestweb, an Internet company. The prolonged weakness in the lumber and wood products sectors is the main reason companies cite for the cuts.
