Conifex to keep Mackenzie sawmill closed in May

Conifex Timber is extending its temporary shut down at its Mackenzie sawmill for four weeks to June 1.

The company cites continued weakened global demand for forest products amid sustained uncertainty from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as reasons for the extended shut down. The curtailment is not expected to have any adverse consequence on bioenergy operations. Conifex will continue to closely monitor the evolving market conditions, customer demand and the global COVID-19 response while prioritizing employee health and safety considerations, according to a company news release.
