Canfor Pulp Products Inc. Extends Production Curtailment of BCTMP at Taylor Pulp Mill in B.C.

Canfor Pulp Products Inc. announced on Tuesday (3-29-22) that it was extending the curtailment of BCTMP production at its Taylor Pulp, B.C. mill for a minimum of six-weeks. The curtailment extension is due to the ongoing transportation shortages that have resulted in continued high finished product inventories at the pulp mill. The curtailment extension is expected to further reduce the production of BCTMP by at least 25,000 tons.

Kevin Anderson, VP Operations for Canfor Pulp, said in regard to curtailment extension, “Unfortunately, the ongoing rail transportation situation has not improved, and we have no choice but to extend the current production curtailment. We are very disappointed in the ongoing impact this is having on our employees, their families, and the community.”
