SCOTSBURN – The Ligni Bel sawmill, which shut down in November, could be back in business after Northern Resources acquired $5 million in secured debt of the company.

The move means Northern Resources, an affiliate of Northern Resources Nova Scotia Corporation, would take over the mill "with the intention of reopening (it) and creating at least 70 jobs in Scotsburn," says Bob Bagdon, vice-president human resources at the company.


Robert Bowers, representative of United Steel Workers Union, said: “I am very pleased that Northern Resources is interested in reopening the Scotsburn sawmill as this will result in getting our members back to work as soon as possible.” 

Organizations: Northern Resources Nova Scotia, United Steel Workers Union

    I will believe it when I see it, but it would be good to have new owners in there, the Lebel Group could not run the mill, hopefully after 10 years I been working there a company that values there employees and listens to there opinions is about to take over.
