Powell River Name
Pulp and Paper Industry
In 1909, after purchasing the pulp lease owned by the Canadian Industrial Company and the water rights of Powell Lake from the Pacific Coast Power Company, Brooks and Scanlon incorporated The Powell River Company. By 1912, the Powell River Mill was built and in operation and by the mid-1960s, it was the highest producer of wood fibre pulp and paper newsprint in the world.
The Powell River Company was merged into MacMillan Bloedel in 1960. Ownership then passed to Pacific Papers in 1998, which was again purchased by Norske Skog Canada in 2001, becoming Catalyst Paper in 2005. Paper Excellence Canada finalized the acquisition of Catalyst Paper on Mach 15, 2019.
