Millar Western’s 100th Anniversary

Posted by AFPA | August 28, 2019

Congratulations to Millar Western for 100 years of innovation, leadership, and progressive forest management. A century in operation is quite the milestone, and we are honoured to have taken part of this special day.

It was an action-packed day for Millar Western’s employees, family, friends, and special guests. The company hosted a tour of their pulp mill, with views of their bioenergy plant, sawmill, planer mill, and crane, followed by a ceremonial tree-planting, axe-throwing, and a BBQ.

Thank you to all who helped us celebrate Millar Western’s 100th Anniversary, and to the special guests for their kind words. A century in operation is a reflection of hard work, dedication, and a commitment to sustainability. Well done, and keep up the great work!
