CHH NZ sawmill may close
Friday 24 Jan 2020
"These sawmills are also better located in terms of access to logs and proximity to customers." Continuing log shortages in Northland contributed to the company's "in-principle decision" to close the Whangarei sawmill, he said.
"The decision has been made reluctantly but the sawmill had been facing log shortages for some time and our analysis was that it's only going to get worse." Carter Holt Harvey would be working closely with the union and affected staff to ensure that staff had the support they need, he said. Staff would be consulted and the company would then consider feedback before making a final decision, he said.
