Sinclar curtails lumber operations
Sinclar Group Forest Products Ltd. is curtailing its British Columbia lumber operations at Apollo Forest Products in Fort St. James, Lakeland Mills in Prince George, and Nechako Lumber Co. in Vanderhoof, for various periods over the next few months. Nechako Lumber will curtail operations from May 14 to July 29; Apollo Forest Products will curtail operations from
June 4 to June 30; and Lakeland Mills will curtail operations from July 2 to July 29. The curtailments have been scheduled due to the high cost of fibre, compounded by poor market conditions, says the company. They are necessary so it can maintain log inventory and draw down rough lumber inventories at the three locations. These industry challenges are expected to persist through 2023.
