Canfor Pulp’s Northwood Pulp Mill Resuming Production after BC Port Strike Ends
The curtailment is due to limited storage space for pulp products that cannot be transported overseas as a result of the ongoing labour dispute at B.C. ports.
July 17, 2023 – Canfor Pulp Products said that production will resume at its Northwood Pulp Mill in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, this week.
On July 13, Canfor Pulp curtailed production at the Northwood Pulp Mill due to limited storage space for pulp products that could not be transported overseas as a result of the labour dispute at B.C. ports.
The downtime could have reduced the mill’s production capacity by about 11,000 tonnes of market kraft pulp per week.
The Northwood pulp mill has the capacity to produce 510,000 air-dried metric tonnes per year of Premium Bleached Softwood Kraft Pulp.
Canfor Pulp Products Inc. (TSX: CFX) is a leading global supplier of pulp and paper products with operations in the central interior of British Columbia. Canfor Pulp owns and operates three mills in Prince George, BC with a total capacity of 780,000 tonnes of Premium Reinforcing Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft (“NBSK”) Pulp and 140,000 tonnes of kraft paper.
