Conifex Timber Inc. completed construction of its sawmill, two continuous dry kilns, and planer mill in El Dorado, Arkansas (the “ED Mill”) on schedule and on budget. Conifex Timber plans to start testing and commissioning of its planer mill this month and commence commercial operations in December.

 The company will initially operate the ED Mill on a one-shift basis and expect to ramp-up production to approximately 90% of capacity by December 2018. The ED Mill is designed to have annual production capacity of 180 million board feet on a two-shift basis, representing approximately 25% of total lumber capacity of its mills at this level.

Conifex and its subsidiaries' primary business currently includes timber harvesting, reforestation, forest management, sawmilling logs into lumber and wood chips, and value added lumber finishing and distribution.
