White Birch Paper Company announces that it plans to reopen the Stadacona paper mill in Quebec City. The paper mill was idled on December 9, 2011 due to tough market conditions.
"This marks a new beginning for the Stadacona mill. A second chance. One that was only accomplished through hard work and sacrifice by many. Compromises by all parties involved, have resulted in a promising future for Stadacona. As a proud corporate citizen of Quebec, on behalf of both the company and its employees, I would like to thank Minister Hamad and the other members of the Provincial Quebec Government for the role they played in developing a sustainable solution," said Christopher Brant, President of White Birch Paper.
The Stadacona mill has an annual capacity to produces 410,000 tonnes of newsprint, 95,000 tonnes of directory paper and 45,000 tonnes of paperboard.
