Millar Western to buy Alberta’s Spruceland Millworks

The Acheson, Alta. sawmill and wood products manufacturer employs more than 100 workers at a 12,000 square-metre facility

EDMONTON—Millar Western Forest Products Ltd. has bought Spruceland Millworks Inc., including its manufacturing operations in Acheson, Alta., and its woodlands assets.

Financial terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Spruceland is expected to operate as a division of Millar Western under its existing management team and brand.

The company was founded in 1982 and now has more than 100 employees and a 12,000 square metre manufacturing facility.
