Norbord resumed production at its OSB mill in Canada

Norbord resumed production at its OSB mill in 100 Mile House, British Columbia over the weekend. The production was resumed after the evacuation order for 100 Mile House and nearby communities was lifted.

The 100 Mile House mill has a stated annual production capacity of 440 million square feet (3/8-inch basis).

On July 10, 2017 Norbord reported that its OSB mill in 100 Mile House had temporarily suspended production in order to comply with evacuation orders due to wild fires burning in the region.

Earlier Quebec granted Norbord a wood allocation for Chambord OSB mill in Canada.
