Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Kruger Inc., Montréal, Qué., Canada, will extend the shutdown of No. 3 paper machine at its Wayagamack Mill in Trois-Rivières, Qué, for a period of one month, starting March 31. The company says it came to this decision due to ongoing weak market conditions, such as the high value of the Canadian dollar and low demand for directory paper.

PM 3 was shutdown on December 31, 2009, and was planned to restart on March 31. Production is now planned to resume on May 1.

Kruger Inc. is a producer of publication papers, tissue, lumber and other wood products, corrugated cartons from recycled fibers, green and renewable energy, and wines and spirits. The company operates paper and paperboard facilities in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and the U.S. It has 9,000 employees.
