Eacom to upgrade Ear Falls

Apr. 11, 2014 - Eacom Timber Corporation has purchased a complete planer mill lineal grading optimizer for its sawmill in Ear Falls, Ontario from VAB Solutions.

"We are proud to have completed the sale and installation of this system for Eacom Timber Corporation. This demonstrates the effectiveness of our scanner and the benefits it provides to our business partners, "says Jean Berube President of VAB Solutions.

The Ear Falls sawmill, located 410 km from Winnipeg, closed in December 2009. EACOM acquired the sawmill from Domtar a year later along with the rights to 150 million board feel of stud lumber per year from the Trout Forest. The mill reopening has been dependent on reaching a labour agreement with the union and a steady supply of lumber. Content that these two requirements have been met, the company is confident it will be ready to start the mill back up this year.

For more information on the sawmill's reopening, please see this article.
