Canfor has announced a temporary reduction in production in British Columbia, which it says is due to challenging market conditions. The production capacity will be reduced through a two–week curtailment beginning September 26 at the majority of solid wood facilities in B.C. and will be followed by the resumption of reduced operating schedules until the end of 2022.
This is expected to result in a reduction of approximately 200 million board feet of production capacity.
“We are temporarily curtailing production in B.C. due to reduced market demand,” said Don Kayne, President
and CEO, Canfor. “We will leverage our global operating platform to prioritize the requirements of our customers.”
To limit the impact on employees, they will have the opportunity to work during the downtime to complete maintenance projects and other site activities
