Northeast BC gets world-scale industrial distribution hub

Buffalo Rail & Infrastructure Corporation has acquired Canfor Pulp Products’ discontinued pulp mill assets, including 300+ acres of heavy industrial land, in Taylor, BC. Buffalo plans to repurpose the property into a multi-use industrial distribution and logistics hub focused on serving the region's energy, agricultural, and forestry industries.

"The multi-phased, multi-year development provides a much-needed response to the changing logistics and supply chains needs of industrial participants across multiple industries and sectors in western Canada and beyond," says Jarrett Zielinski, president and CEO of Buffalo.

Phase 1 is expected to become operational around the second quarter of 2025.

Headquartered in Calgary, AB, Buffalo Rail & Infrastructure Corp. was created in 2023 by a diverse team of logistics industry veterans to capitalize on global shifts in supply chain strategy. With its mission to develop modernized rail and rail adjacent infrastructure, Buffalo’s initiatives are geared to better service the evolving needs of North American producers and shippers. The company accomplishes this by investing growth capital into both brownfield and greenfield sites to develop and/or repurpose highly efficient rail logistics infrastructure and increase the throughput of our customers and North American rail operators.
