Softwood lumber sawmill and wood chip operation
- Our Chapleau sawmill, with 150 employees, produces softwood (spruce, pine and fir) lumber as well as wood chips.
- The sawmill produces random-size lumber, which has a broad range of applications.
- The site also uses biomass (e.g. bark, shavings, sawdust) to produce green steam used in sawmill kilns and to generate green electricity.
