Shutdown for paper machines


Paper production at the local AbitibiBowater mill will halted for two weeks starting next Monday (Feb. 21) due to poor market conditions.
Pierre Choquette, Abitibi’s manager of Canadian Public Affairs, said this morning the temporary shutdown is expected to affect 230 employees.
He added the kraft mill will continue to operate during this time.
The paper machines are scheduled to resume production March 7.
