Cariboo Pulp & Paper (CPP) commenced production in November 1972 with a daily production of 675 tonnes of northern bleached softwood kraft (NBSK) pulp. Located in Quesnel, British Columbia, in a quiet valley surrounded by majestic mountains and lush forests, this scenic city is driven by the forest industry.
The mill is a 50/50 joint venture between Mercer International Inc. and West Fraser Mills Ltd., with the Mercer purchase occurring in December 2018. CPP has an annual production output of 336,000 tonnes of high-quality ECF NBSK and a workforce of approximately 400 committed team members.
Regarded for its superior length of fibres, Cariboo pulp is used in the manufacturing of a variety of paper products that include printing and writing paper, tissue, and specialty grades. Cariboo Pulp & Paper’s efficiency and operational excellence are recognized through its ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
CPP is a leading producer of NBSK pulp as well as green energy. We have been highly respected by the global market for over 40 years and continue to provide revered high-quality products today. Forward-thinking ownership, capital investment, and a drive towards new sustainable and ethical bioproduct opportunities have contributed to Cariboo’s longevity and bright future.
The entirety of Cariboo Pulp & Paper’s sales are made in Asia, with the majority destined for markets in Japan and China. Our physical location within British Columbia ensures our products can be delivered with ease to these markets.
