Mills damaged by fire start shipping again

NIAGARA FALLS, New York - Cascades announced today 23 Sept 2014 that operations have resumed partially at the Greenpac and Niagara Falls containerboard mills following the fire that occurred in the exterior old corrugated containers (OCC) stock piles on Saturday.

Both mills have begun shipping finished products manufactured prior to the fire. Production equipment at the Greenpac mill was not damaged during the fire and the mill is expected to resume normal production within next 48 hours. Start-up of the Norampac mill will not be determined until damage to the stock preparation equipment is fully assessed. Employees of both mills are now back to work to help out with various tasks in preparation for start-up.

Production at Norampac's box plants was unaffected by the unplanned shutdown of the two mills as Norampac was able to compensate containerboard demand with shipments from its other mills.

In commenting the situation, Marc-André Dépin, President and Chief Executive Officer for Norampac stated: "We wish to thank the firefighters, police crews, Mayor Dyster and our employees for the amazing work they accomplished despite heavy winds and challenging weather conditions".
