West Fraser Makes Changes
West Fraser Timber is permanently curtailing approximately 170 million board feet of combined production at its Fraser Lake and Williams Lake sawmills, as well as approximately 85 million square feet of plywood at its Quesnel Plywood mill. The curtailments will occur through the elimination of one shift at each facility. Access to available timber is an increasing challenge in British Columbia, with ongoing transportation constraints impairing the company’s ability to reliably access markets.
