Timber Supply The company’s Canadian forestry operations are managed by the Forest Products Group. This includes the harvesting of timber, either directly or through contractors, and all silviculture and regeneration work required to ensure a sustainable supply of wood fibre to the manufacturing units. The Forest Products Group is also responsible for third-party timber purchases and wood chip production from whole log chippers, which are required to supplement total requirements.

The company harvests timber under forest tenures held by it in British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec and has a total allowable annual cut of approximately 4.8 million cubic meters. Specialty Cellulose Pulp Segment This segment consists of two manufacturing facilities, which produce specialty cellulose pulps. The mills generate lignin as a by-product of the sulphite process, which is sold to third parties. The Temiscaming mill also includes a facility that produces ethanol as a by-product that is also sold to third parties. The segment also includes a stand-alone resin business, which produces powder and liquid phenolic resins at two operating sites in Quebec: Temiscaming and Longueuil. The company also operates a third facility located in Toledo, Ohio, United States, which manufactures powder and liquid amino-resins.

The specialty cellulose pulp produced at the two pulp mills is high purity cellulose utilized in various specialized products, such as pharmaceuticals, food additives, and industrial chemicals. The Temiscaming specialty cellulose pulp mill also produces viscose grade pulp, which is utilized in the production of viscose staple fibre, which in turn is used to produce rayon for the textile industry.
