Kevin Edgson, who serves as the president and CEO pf Canfor, commented that the new owner is determined to repurpose the Taylor site, and work on a long-term plan that would also benefit the community.


The transaction is expected to be finalised during the first quarter of 2024. 


“Canfor's North American facilities produce high-quality dimension lumber, value-added finishing products, and top-quality pulp & paper. We are also a leading producer of wood pellets and green energy,” the Canadian business said in a statement.
