$50 million upgrade for Castlegar saw mill

Interfor has announced a major upgrade to its Castlegar operations.

The company’s Director of Public Affairs Karen Brandt says they’ll spend $50 million making the mill a 2-line operation.

Work will get underway this month towards start-up in early 2016.

Once online the new 2-shift operation will increase total production by around 15%. But Brandt says it’s also about ensuring the mill is competitive and efficient into the future.

The company says there is no intention of any lay-offs as a result of the hi-tech upgrades.
