VANCOUVER , Sept. 9, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, West Fraser announced it will introduce variable operating schedules at five of its British Columbia sawmills that will result in an estimated decrease of production in the range of 15-25% of current B.C. lumber production. The operating schedules at these sawmills will vary and be adjusted from time to time depending on then market conditions. The potential effect of the revised operating schedules could be an aggregate reduction by up to an estimated 100 million board feet through to the end of the year. West Fraser also announced that it would curtail B.C. plywood production for two weeks reducing output by approximately 9 Msf. The variable operating schedules for sawmill operations and the curtailment of plywood operations in B.C. are expected to commence September 16, 2019 .
VANCOUVER , June 28, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, West Fraser announced a temporary, two-week suspension of production at its Alberta Plywood operations and High Prairie sawmill to address low log inventories for the facilities. Log inventories in support of these mills have been adversely impacted by wildfire-related logging curtailments compounded by recent wet weather. The decision to implement this temporary reduction provides time to build log inventories to more appropriate levels. Plywood production is anticipated to be reduced by approximately 13 million square feet, while the impact on Alberta lumber production is anticipated to be minor.
VANCOUVER , June 17, 2019 /CNW/ - Today, West Fraser announced its intention to permanently close its Chasm lumber mill and eliminate the third shift from its 100 Mile House lumber mill, both to occur during the third quarter of 2019. It is the result of well-documented timber supply constraints owing to B.C.'s devastating Mountain Pine Beetle infestation, recent record wildfires, price declines in lumber markets and high saw log costs," stated Ferris. "As a result of reduced harvesting levels set by the Chief Forester of B.C., there is insufficient timber supply to support the current lumber production capacity of the lumber mills in these locations.
WINNIPEG, Manitoba/OTTAWA, May 30 (Reuters) - A lockout of longshore workers at Canada's biggest port, the Port of Vancouver, ended in a deal on Thursday after a few hours, averting a potentially massive shipping disruption, the workers' union and employers association said. The lockout was immediately lifted and the union also withdrew its strike notice, according to separate statements by the BC Maritime Employers Association and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Canada. At issue was the employers association's introduction of automation that could eliminate jobs, the union said.
