Paper Excellence laying off 95 employees amid two-week shutdown at Crofton mill

CANADA (From news reports) -- Paper Excellence says it's temporarily laying off around 95 employees at its Crofton pulp and paper mill starting Saturday to coincide with scheduled annual maintenance.

Production curtailment is expected to last two weeks and "reduce the site exposure to higher-cost energy through this period," Paper Excellence said in a news release.

"We remain committed to our impacted employees and servicing our paper customers' needs during this curtailment," the company said.

Paper Excellence, a B.C.-based manufacturer of pulp and paper products with facilities across the province, says affected staff will receive layoff notices.

The company's Crofton mill employs about 585 full-time staff and previously faced a month-long curtailment in March 2020 due to a lack of wood amid a Western Forest Products strike.
