Mattawa Sawmill Sold

A shuttered former Tembec sawmill in Mattawa, ON, has been sold to a southern Ontario green-tech startup company, according to Northern Ontario Business Friday.
The Mattawa-Bonfield Economic Development Corporation (MBEDC) announced that the BioNorth Technology Group acquired the 187-acre mill property in August.
The company needs a minimum of 50,000 cubic metres of fibre annually particularly softwood.
The fibre allotment from area forest management units that was once attached to the Tembec mill was redistributed to other users through the province’s Crown wood competition.
The property located on Highway 17, just west of Mattawa, contains 80,000 square feet of covered manufacturing space with a maintenance garage, an intact sawmill, and a weigh scale.
