September 8, 2022 (press release) –

A groundbreaking ceremony on August 26 marked the start of construction on a new planer mill adjacent to our Senneterre (Quebec) sawmill. The planer, expected to be functional by the end of this year, will optimize our fiber supply, enhance overall efficiency of the sawmill and reduce production costs for our Abitibi regional operations. 

Plans to modernize operations at the Senneterre sawmill were initially announced in July 2021 and also include the installation of automated sorting bins. 

The total investment of C$36 million in our Senneterre facility is aligned with our efforts to build a stronger company while driving economic activity in the communities where we operate.

From l. to r.: Pierre Dufour, Quebec’s minister of Forests, Wildlife and Parks; Nathalie-Ann Pelchat, mayor of Senneterre; and Remi Lalonde, president and chief executive officer, Resolute Forest Products
