White Birch to Temporarily Reduce Production at Quebec Mills

White Birch Paper Co., Greenwich, Conn., USA, reports that it will halt production at its three Quebec, Canada, mills during the last week of June. The three mills are located in Quebec City, Masson Angers, and Riviere de Loup. Production of newsprint and directory will be reduced by roughly 12,000 metric tons combined.

White Birch produces newsprint, directory and bulky paper, and paperboard, with mills in the U.S. and Canada. These mills produce more than 1.3 million tons of newsprint and directory paper with up to 50% recycled content.
