J.D. Irving to begin work in July on $35 million sawmill expansion in Doaktown, N.B.
DOAKTOWN, N.B. (From news reports) -- J.D. Irving Ltd. says work will get under way next month on the $35-million modernization and expansion at its sawmill in Doaktown, N.B.

The project will add about 1,300 square metres to the mill's footprint by bringing together the sawmill, planer mill and value-added centre under one roof.

The sawmill in the Miramichi region of the province is currently located on the other side of the road.

New technology will be installed.

The project will employ a team of 60 people during peak construction.

Irving is hoping to start up operations next spring.

"On completion, this site will be one of the most modern of its kind in North America. From a customer and market perspective, the timing is right," said Jerome Pelletier, vice-president of sawmills for J.D. Irving.
