EACOM Reconstruction

The reconstruction Eacom’s sawmill in Timmins, ON, is just a couple of months from being completed, according to Timmins Press Sunday.
It will be take longer, however, before mill operators can settle back and declare the job done.
“We expect the construction to be finalized within the next two months,” explained Guy Fleury, general manager of the mill.
However, the mill and the new equipment that was installed needs to be run for at least a full year while exposed to different conditions in order to evaluate their performance.
Eacom has invested about $25 million to rebuild the mill, much of which was destroyed by a large fire in January 2012. The mill was shut down for more than a year as a result. Reconstruction began last year.
