West Fraser announced the reduction of between 5% and 10% of output during July and August. According to their operational update, wildfires in BC, slowing orders, resin shortages, transportation interruptions and overall inventory levels all led to the cutback in production. The company anticipates the reduced operating rates to remain in place through the remainder of the third quarter.
