The paper operations at Paper Excellence Canada’s Catalyst Crofton mill in British Columbia, initially scheduled to restart end of this month, will now stay closed until the end of November.

“While market conditions continue to support the restart of our pulp operations and employment of more than 300 workers, the curtailment of paper operations at Crofton is being extended to the end of November,” the company said in a statement.

The continued curtailment means that approximately 70 paper operations employees will not return to work in November.

“Paper Excellence Canada continues to work with our employees to mitigate the impact of the ongoing paper production curtailment. The sales team continues to work with customers to provide alternative products from Catalyst Alberni mill or other mills within the Paper Excellence Group family of companies where possible.”
