Catalyst to Take Downtime at Snowflake, AZ Mill
Sept. 29, 2008 - Catalyst Paper said that production at its Snowflake Mill in Arizona will be curtailed for eight days beginning October 20.
The downtime will remove approximately 8,000 tonnes of recycle newsprint from the market and will reduce old newsprint (ONP) fibre requirements by some 10,000 tonnes, Catalyst said.
"We are watching demand and inventory levels very closely," said Richard Garneau, president and chief executive officer. "Existing orders and shipments will be managed accordingly to address delivery commitments and maintain efficient operations during the mill downtime."
