Crofton Mill back up and running after shutdown

Catalyst Paper Corporation’s Crofton operation was back up and running June 29 following a brief shutdown, the company said.

But the stoppage was not without cost.

The company announced Monday that "due to operating issues that have been fully resolved, the Crofton mill has incurred production losses of approximately 8,600 tonnes of pulp and 8,600 tonnes of paper in the month of June. These production losses will not impact current customer orders but will reduce second quarter earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of approximately $5 to 6 million."

The company also stated that "no health or environmental issues occurred during this period, and the mill has returned to production capacity."
