Kruger to Take Coated, SC Paper Downtime in Canada

Feb. 9, 2009 - Kruger today said that it will take 10 days of market-related downtime beginning February 27 to March 9 for coated paper production at the Trois-Rivieres and Kruger Wayagamack mills in Canada.

Supercalendered paper production at the Trois-Rivieres Mill will also be curtailed during the same period, Kruger added.

The downtime will temporarily affect a total of 625 workers—325 at Trois Rivieres and 300 at Wayagamack

The Montreal-based papermaker said the capacity adjustment will allow it to re-balance its order book by reducing coated paper by 10,000 tons and supercalendered paper by 1,500 tons.
