Frank Dottori opens White River sawmill

July 1, 2013 – The founder of Tembec, Frank Dottori is reopening a former Domtar sawmill in White River under the banner of White River Forest Products. It will be a stud and random-length mill that is hoped to start up with one shift in the fall.

“We’re saying by October 1 we should be up and running,” said Dottori. He is part of an ownership group in a three-way partnership of private investors (53 per cent), Pic Mobert First Nation (23.5 per cent) and the Township of White River (23.5 per cent).

Dottori, who holds 49.8 per cent of the private ownership piece, expects to be a hands-on boss for the operation valued between $20 million and $25 million.
