Port Hawkesbury Paper and Northern Pulp help each other
Two Nova Scotia mills have formed an agreement to work together.
Port Hawkesbury Paper will be renovating its wood room this spring. During that same time period, Northern Pulp will be down for a 10 day maintenance shutdown.
So, the companies have agreed to word together. Northern Pulp will provide wood chips for Port Hawkesbury Paper while their wood room is under renovations.
Glenn O’Connor, fibre procurement leader at Northern Pulp, said, “The fibre that we would need at that time we’re not using, so they need wood chips to produce while their wood room is down, so it’s kind of a win-win.”
O’Connor emphasized that collaborating makes sense. “We’ve all got to survive, and we’re not here to collaborate to lower prices. We’re here to collaborate (in a way) that makes sense and just be smart, and so we all can survive in the same province. It’s a global market. Our competition isn’t the guy down at Port Hawkesbury. It’s the guy in Asia or it’s the guy in Brazil.”
