Weyerhaeuser has reopened its OSB mill in Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan, after a two-year closure reports The Canadian Press.

Nearly 140 workers lost their jobs when the company closed the mill – which has an annual capacity of 550 million ft2 – in July 2008.

Hudson Bay’s economic development officer Dave Ferguson said two of the four shifts were back to work, and that production volume will be limited this year and based on demand and other economic factors.

When Weyerhaeuser announced the mill’s curtailment in April 2, 2008, it also said it would explore the sale of the facility, but earlier this year when it emerged Weyerhaeuser planned to reopen the mill, a company spokesperson said the Hudson Bay mill was important to the company’s OSB system.
