The new facility opened in late November, with Pinnacle CEO Rob McCurdy looking forward to having the newest plant on the corporate roster contributing quickly to their expanding footprint in the renewable power industry.

We expect commissioning of the Facility to be straightforward, due to its simple design and a fibre plan that consists mostly of clean, easily processed sawdust and shavings, supplied primarily by our partner West Fraser."
The new Smithers plant is a co-venture with West Fraser with Pinnacle Resource holding a seventy percent interest, while West Fraser holds the remaining thirty percent.
