Terrace sawmill, bioenergy plant closing indefinitely

Another sawmill closing

Skeena Sawmills, a major employer in Terrace, has announced it is closing indefinitely as of today, throwing more than 150 people out of work, but hopes to reopen at some point.

The closure includes both the mill and its pellet plant, Skeena Bioenergy, according to a story in the Terrace Standard.

Last month, Skeena halted log deliveries to its Terrace operation for three weeks.

The move comes on the heels of Canfor’s announcement that it is permanently closing its sawmill and pellet plant in Chetwynd and mothballing its operations in Houston.
