Quesnel Investment Corp. has sold the mill operation assets of the bankrupt C&C Wood Products Co., which it bought in 2020, to Kandola Forest Products, a Williams Lake forestry company.
Quesnel intends to continue to operate the Westside Logging portion of the business separately.
KPF president Neal Kandola said, “We are confident that we will restore the sawmill as a successful, stable, long-term employer and operator in the city of Quesnel, given the thoughtful and thorough due diligence we undertook in considering our purchase. Over the coming years, we will be exploring further investments that will increase our employment numbers to greater than previous peak numbers.”
The mill, which converts lumber into engineered wood, wall paneling, shiplap and glulam products, will rehire approximately 90 experienced workers.
