Interfor announces downtime in BC Interior
Interfor today announced plans to temporarily reduce production across its operating platform in the B.C. Interior during the month of May due to a combination of weak lumber prices and continuing high log costs.
The curtailment is expected to reduce production in the region by approximately 20 million board feet for the month of May and will be taken by way of reduced operating days at each of the three B.C. Interior mills.
Interfor has three sawmills in the B.C. Interior, with total annual capacity of approximately 750 million board feet.
