Canfor throttles 10% cutting in British Columbia

02.11.2018 − 

Canfor reduces cutting at its British Columbia sawmills by an average of 10% in the fourth quarter. In a press release published yesterday, the Group explained the production curtailment with log supply bottlenecks, increased log procurement costs and the current difficult conditions in the sawn timber markets. According to Canfor CEO Don Kayne, the production cuts will be achieved by reducing the number of working days. Canfor operates a total of 13 sawmills in British Columbia with a combined annual capacity of 3.8bn bdft.

In October, Tolko Industries (Vernon), Interfor (Vancouver) and Western Forest Products (WFP) (Vancouver), three other sawmill groups based in British Columbia, announced cuts in coniferous timber production for similar reasons.
