Hefler Forest Products to be sold to anonymous buyer

Dec. 8, 2016 - Hefler Forest Products may be sold to an anonymous buyer come January 2017. The Sackville, N.S.-based lumber company has been under creditor-protection since July 2016.

The Chronicle Herald reports Hefler's lawyer, Carl Holm told the court in July that the company owes more than $30 million to four secured creditors and another $30 to 40 million to unsecured creditors.

Hefler, which was founded in 1866, has been a company longer than Canada has been a country.

According to its website, it began rebuilding its sawmill in 2014, which in turn helped to keep more than 50 jobs. The company also has a biomass energy plant, which was completed in June 2015. 

No details are being revealed on the buyer at this time.
