[Richmond, BC] – Paper Excellence today announced a production curtailment at its Crofton paper facility. 

The curtailment will coincide with scheduled annual maintenance of key utility assets.  The outage will reduce the site exposure to higher cost energy through this period.  The curtailment will commence September 10th, 2022 and is expected to last approximately two weeks.  It is estimated that approximately 95 employees will be affected with temporary layoff notices. 

We remain committed to our impacted employees and servicing our paper customers’ needs during this curtailment.
