It is expected to result in cost savings of up to 14.7% per facility depending on location, and potentially result in between $750,000 and $1 million in additional cash flow, the company said.
Dirk Maritz, the group's CEO, said the agreement was "part of AEP's strategic plan to capitalize on the efficiencies of consolidating the engineered wood products industry."
"All of our current facilities in BC, Manitoba and Ontario will benefit from this supply certainty and cost savings."

"This comprehensive approach to lumber supply will ensure we receive full load deliveries throughout the busy summer building season, a competitive advantage for our clients."
