INTERFOR CORPORATION has announced plans to temporarily reduce production across its operating platform in the BC Interior in Q4’18 due to a combination of declining lumber prices and escalating log costs. The curtailment is expected to reduce production in the region by approximately 20% during the quarter and will be taken by way of reduced operating days and extended weekends/holiday breaks.

Interfor has three sawmills in the BC Interior, with total annual capacity of approximately 750 million board feet. The company has three operations in the BC Interior at Castlegar, Grand Forks and Nakusp.
