RFP’s Sapawe mill planes its first board

April 23, 2015 – A significant step forward has been taken in the development of Resolute Forest Products’ new Sapawe mill near Atikokan, Ont.

According to the Atikokan Progress, the new planer at the mill produced its first board on April 4th, bringing the mill one important step closer to full operation.
