Our mill in Windsor, Quebec, serves a global export market. Customers appreciate the sustainability of the Windsor operation and the local forests that support it.

While we have always used locally grown wood to make paper, there are some important benefits from shortening the distance we haul from the forest to the mill.

With 50,000 trucks hauling wood annually, and an average haul distance to the mill of 120 miles, road safety, truck noise, greenhouse gas emissions, and labor availability are some of the issues we manage every day along with controlling freight costs.
