ANC Timber Ltd. is the Woodlands Department of Alberta’s first and only paper mill, Alberta Newsprint Company (ANC), which is a joint venture of The Stern Partners and West Fraser Timber Co. Ltd.
With a strong commitment to excellence shared by every member of the team, ANC supplies companies worldwide with high quality, cost effective and socially responsible lightweight paper grades.
Based in Whitecourt Alberta and started in 1989 ANC is a 50/50 partnership between the Stern Group and West Fraser. ANC is Alberta’s only combined pulp and paper mill. ANC started out solely in the newsprint business but has since evolved and now produces a number of grades of paper. To maintain their competitive edge ANC has diversified into other businesses on site including power generation with a 65MW gas fired power plant built in 2014 and a Transload facility built in 2013.
ANC manages a 374,000 hectare Forest Management Agreement area south west of Fox Creek as well as a coniferous quota SE of Edson and a deciduous allocation around the town of Fox Creek.
ANC Forest operations are 3rd party certified to SFI, PEFC and Alberta Forest Care standards.
