VANCOUVER - West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd. says it will indefinitely curtail its Perry Sawmill in Florida later this month due to high fibre costs and softening lumber markets.

The Vancouver-based company said in a press release that the indefinite curtailment will affect around 126 employees. However, West Fraser says it will try to mitigate the effect on workers by providing work opportunities at other West Fraser operations.
