Kruger Extends Downtime for PM 3 at Wayagamack Mill
March 18, 2010 – Kruger today said that it will extend the downtime of PM 3 at its Wayagamack Mill in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada for a
period of one month starting March 31.
Kruger said the decision to extend downtime is the result of ongoing weak market conditions, i.e. the high value of the Canadian dollar and low demand for directory paper.
PM 3 was shut down on December 31, 2009 with a planned restart set for March 31.
Production is now planned to resume on May 1, Kruger said.
PM 3 has the capacity to produce about 74,000 metric tons per year of directory paper.
