MacKenzie Canfor Mill will re-open

Canfor Corporation announced Friday that it will be restarting operations at its Mackenzie sawmill this summer.

The decision to restart operations in Mackenzie comes as a result of the Company’s efforts to increase its production of value-added products.

The mill will return to operation with a single shift. This decision should result in the production of 80 million board feet of SPF lumber, on an annualized basis.

The restart of operations in Mackenzie will directly employ approximately 60 people, in addition to suppliers and contractors associated with the operation.

The sawmill was shut down in June of 2008 and about 200 employees were laid off.
