Kenora Forest Products up for sale as parent company files for bankruptcy

Share this story

Kenora Forest Products in Kenora Ont. is up for sale, after its parent company, Winnipeg-based Prendiville Industries filed for bankruptcy in early December.
Prendiville Industries filed for bankruptcy on Dec. 5. The company had closed its Kenora sawmill in September 2019, laying off more than 100 employees at that time.
According to published reports, Prendiville Industries plans to sell the northwestern Ontario mill property and its assets by April 2020 and there is hope the mill will then restart under a new owner.
Prendiville Industries purchased the mill in 1994, along with adjacent land in the early 2000s. Throughout its operations, the mill in Kenora employed up to 145 people, with its final layoff in September 2019 putting 113 people out of work. Nine people still remain on site, to help maintain assets, and also assist with moving already produced lumber to buyers.
