Minister of Forests Celebrates Commissioning of Richply’s Energy Efficient Boiler

Yesterday marked a significant chapter in the history of Richmond Plywood as we had the distinct honour of welcoming B.C.’s Minister of Forests, the Honourable Bruce Ralston, along with Assistant Deputy Minister Ms. Sarah Fraser, and our esteemed MLAs, Mr. Aman Singh, and Mr. Henry Yao to celebrate the commissioning of Richply’s new energy efficient back-up boiler with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. This special occasion provided us with a unique opportunity to not only connect with our government representatives but also to showcase the strides we’ve made in ensuring the future sustainability of Richmond Plywood.

Minister Ralston took center stage as he formally inaugurated our new boiler that is designed to reduce emissions, decrease operational costs, and increase our energy capacity to facilitate future growth. Following the ceremony, our distinguished guests were treated to an insightful tour of our mill, where they witnessed firsthand the result of our capital investments in cutting-edge machinery and technologies. These advancements not only solidify Richmond Plywood’s commitment to producing top-quality plywood but also safeguarding the jobs and livelihoods of our dedicated workforce.

During the visit, Bhavjit Thandi, our CFO, had the opportunity to discuss Richply’s Manufacturing Jobs Fund application. This initiative aims to secure provincial government funding for future projects, highlighting our dedication to ongoing growth and innovation. The chance to engage with government officials directly underscores the collaborative spirit between Richply and the province of British Columbia.

As we reflect on yesterday’s events, it is clear that the visit from Minister Ralston, Ms. Fraser, and our MLAs was not just a ceremonial affair but a testament to the progress and commitment that define Richmond Plywood. We look ahead with optimism; confident in our ability to navigate the future with the support of our dedicated team and the backing of the provincial government. Together, we are not only building quality plywood but also a future that is sustainable, innovative, and filled with promise.
