WESTERN COMPLETES KILN UPGRADE AT SALTAIR SAWMILL AND KICKS-OFF ADDITIONAL $35 MILLION INVESTMENT IN B.C. OPERATIONS
The newly installed $12 million continuous dry kiln at the Saltair Sawmill increases the mill’s capacity for continuous drying of lumber, and also provides environmental benefits by reducing energy consumption. The new kiln adds to the three existing kilns on site for drying lumber. The Saltair sawmill is the largest single-line sawmill on the coast of B.C. following previous multi-phase strategic capital investments of over $42 million to modernize the sawmill since 2013.
