Resolute Forest Products marked the start of construction on a new planer mill at its Senneterre, Que., sawmill with an official groundbreaking ceremony.

Quebec forests minister Pierre Dufour, Senneterre Mayor Nathalie-Ann Pelchat, and Resolute CEO Remi Lalonde were all in attendance for the ceremony.

The planer is part of a $36-million investment in the Senneterre facility aimed at optimizing fibre supply, improving efficiency and reducing production costs for Resolute’s Abitibi regional operations. The modernization includes installation of automated sorting bins.

The planer is expected to be operational at the end of the year.
