Montreal hosts Intersaw 2014

Apr. 16, 2014 – Sawmill owners and operators will decend on Montreal in September to stay up to date in this highly competitive market. Intersaw 2014 will attract sawmill owners, mill workers and other industry stakeholders and will focus on the full spectrum of sawmilling equipment and technology, from influences in the log-yard, through primary and secondary breakdown, to the final shipping of the product.

Quebec sawmills produce over a quarter of the nation's lumber. Olympic Stadium will play host to the latest and most innovative equipment and services required to run these mills at the highest rate of efficiency.

With over 400 primary processing plants found throughout the region, this industry provides approximately 80,000 direct jobs in the forestry and wood processing sectors. The forest generates one out of every six jobs in outlying regions, and another 1.6 indirect jobs in the rest of Quebec's economy. For close to 250 of the Quebec municipalities, the forest industry is the main foundation of the local economy.
