A fire at Tolko’s Armstrong mill has led to the temporary shutdown of production. The fire broke out on Sunday evening, and though no injuries were reported, significant damage was done to the structure and equipment. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The Armstrong mill employs over 200 people and is an important economic driver in the region. The mill produces lumber and wood products, which are in high demand in the construction industry. The shutdown of the mill will affect not only the employees but also suppliers and contractors who rely on the mill for business.
Tolko is working closely with local authorities and experts to assess the extent of the damage and determine the next steps. The safety of the employees is the top priority, and Tolko is committed to providing support and assistance to affected employees.
The closure of the Armstrong mill will have an impact on the local economy, as it will result in a decrease in production and revenue. However, Tolko is confident that with proper repairs and safety measures in place, the mill will be able to resume operations in the near future.
In the meantime, the company will be exploring options to minimize the impact of the shutdown, such as diverting production to other mills within its network. Tolko is also committed to keeping the community informed of any updates regarding the situation.
While the fire at Tolko’s Armstrong mill is a setback, the company remains optimistic and is determined to overcome this challenge. The support and resilience of the community will be crucial in the recovery process.
