Conifex to Extend COVID-19 Curtailment
Conifex Timber Inc. (“Conifex”) announced that, in response to continued weakened global demand for forest products amid sustained uncertainty from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is extending its temporary production curtailment at its Mackenzie, British Columbia sawmill for four weeks to June 1, 2020. The curtailment is not expected to have any adverse consequence on bioenergy operations.
Conifex will continue to closely monitor the evolving market conditions, customer demand and the global COVID-19 response while prioritizing employee health and safety considerations.
