Kruger completes acquisition of Kamloops Pulp Mill

Kruger is pleased to announce that its affiliate Kruger Specialty Papers Holding L.P. today completed the acquisition of Domtar’s pulp mill in Kamloops, British Columbia.

The Kamloops facility, which manufactures northern bleached softwood kraft pulp (NBSK) and unbleached softwood kraft pulp, will continue to operate as usual, honouring all existing volume commitments and agreements with customers and suppliers. The Mill’s 320 jobs will be maintained. In addition, Kruger intends to maintain ongoing initiatives to continue modernizing the Mill.

This acquisition will also enable Kruger to secure the supply of high-quality pulp for some of its paper mills, including those in Quebec, where the Company is investing about $1 billion for the construction of two state-of-the-art tissue plants.

The Company also recognizes the important role that the Kamloops Mill plays in the Thompson/Okanagan region and will work closely with local sawmills and wood fibre suppliers to strengthen relationships with these key partners.
