Norbord Mill Resumes Production
Print

Toronto, Ontario, Canada 23 May 2016 -- Norbord Inc. (TSX and NYSE: OSB) today announced that its OSB mill in High Level, Alberta resumed production over the weekend following a fire that occurred on May 4th.

As previously reported, in the afternoon of May 4th, a fire broke out in the mill yard which, as a result of the hot, dry, windy weather conditions in northern Alberta, quickly spread to the log storage area outside the plant. As a precaution, Norbord immediately suspended production at the mill. Shipping from finished goods inventory resumed the weekend of May 6th.

The High Level, Alberta mill has a stated annual production capacity of 860 million square feet (3/8-inch basis) and has been ramping up towards full production since resuming operations in late 2013. High Level is located approximately 720 kilometres northwest of Edmonton and 400 kilometres west of Fort McMurray.
