Stoppage of Arauco mill affecting US imports

01.10.2012 − 

Softwood plywood imports into the US have plunged in the course of recent months due to the stoppage of Paneles Arauco’s radiata pine plywood mill in Nueva Aldea after a fire. The Foreign Agriculture Service announced that softwood plywood shipments from Chile had tumbled 44% to 93,974 m³ in the first six months of 2012 m³; the value of these imports did not fall quite as much, ending up at US$44.5m (67m).
