Canfor Pulp Products says a curtailment first announced in February of this year - will be extended for a minimum six weeks at Taylor Pulp.
The company cites ongoing transportation shortages resulting in continued high finished product inventories at the mill.
“Unfortunately, the ongoing rail transportation situation has not improved, and we have no choice but to extend the current production curtailment,” said Kevin Anderson, VP Operations, Canfor Pulp in a statement Tuesday.
“We are very disappointed in the ongoing impact this is having on our employees, their families and the community.”
The curtailment extension will further reduce the production of BCTMP by at least 25,000 tonnes.
