West Fraser issues operational update

West Fraser Timber Co. has published an update on its operations as B.C. continues to deal with the fallout from flooding and severe weather. The company said it is “utilizing alternative transportation routes and methods to the extent they are available” but “the magnitude and duration of the impact from current weather events remain uncertain.”

“Therefore, West Fraser has reduced operating schedules at multiple western Canadian locations and will continue to make such adjustments as necessary in order to manage inventory levels, raw material supplies, and our integrated fibre supply chain”.
