Heffler Forest Products Reopens

Jobs are coming back to Hefler Forest Products’ sawmill in Middle Sackville, NS, starting next month, said Stan Mason, president of the forest products company to The Hants Journal September 15. The company will be producing specialty wood products, including 12-foot and 16-foot lengths and deck boards.

The new hires next month will amount to 25 sawmill jobs, almost tripling the company’s workforce which now includes 15 employees at its biomass plant, to a total of 40 people.

Under its previous owners, that sawmill employed 35 people, but those jobs were lost after that company filed for creditor protection in July 2016 then closed the sawmill, said The Hants Journal.
