Canfor Pulp Products Inc. has announced it will temporarily curtail production at Prince George Pulp and Paper and Intercontinental Pulp, both located in B.C., for approximately four weeks, beginning July 6, 2020.

“We have made the difficult decision to temporarily curtail Prince George Pulp and Paper and Intercontinental Pulp due to the major global economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shortage of economically viable fibre in the region,” said Don Kayne, Canfor Pulp’s CEO.

The curtailment will reduce Canfor Pulp’s production output by approximately 38,000 tonnes of market kraft pulp and 12,000 tonnes of kraft paper.
