Canfor sawmills to remain on reduced capacity in Western Canada

Canfor mills still curtailed

Canfor's Western Canadian sawmills will continue to operate at reduced capacities in answer to ongoing supply chain challenges, the company said Thursday.

They've been running at about 80 per cent since late March.

In addition, the company said it will be implementing two weeks of rotating downtime across its primary sawmills in the region in July and August, with the aim of resume normal operating schedules once summer is over.

They've been running at about 80 per cent since late March, due to the ongoing global supply chain challenges,

"The global supply challenges are continuing to significantly limit our ability to transport products to our customers and our inventory levels remain very high," Canfor CEO Don Kayne said.

"We are working to bring our inventory levels back into balance by reducing our production, while also working to meet the needs of our customers."
