West Fraser completes sale of pulp mills

Millar Western Forest Products assumes operation in alliance with Atlas Holdings to strengthen its presence in the pulp industry

West Fraser Timber Co Ltd. has announced the completion of the sale of its Quesnel River Pulp Mill and Slave Lake Pulp Mill to a subsidiary of a fund managed by Atlas Holdings, following the completion of regulatory reviews and the satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Separately, these mills will be operated by Millar Western Forest Products, a member of Atlas Holdings’ manufacturing and distribution business group since 2017.

Sean McLaren, West Fraser’s president and chief executive officer, said, “We would like to thank our dedicated employees for their many years of service to West Fraser and the communities of Quesnel and Slave Lake,”. “The sale of these two pulp assets, along with the disposition of Hinton Pulp earlier this year, enables West Fraser to focus its resources on becoming the premier building products company in North America.”

Quesnel River Pulp and Slave Lake Pulp produce bleached chemical-thermo-mechanical pulp (“BCTMP”) used in the manufacture of paper products.
