Created in 2008 and privately held, Harmac Pacific Pulp operates a Northern Bleached Softwood Kraft pulp mill on the east coast of Vancouver Island near Nanaimo, BC. Nanaimo Forest Products (NFP) Ltd., the owner of the Harmac Pacific trademark, restarted the mill with a single production line on October 3, 2008. Since that time the mill has grown to two production lines and a capacity of 380,000 tonnes of world class pulp per year.
Key to the Harmac’s success is the employee ownership model. Our employees are very active participants in the running of the business and have 2 members that they appoint to the company’s 6 seats on its Board of Directors.
The future of Harmac Pacific Pulp is looking bright. Through extensive capital investments, the organization has made significant improvements to productivity and reliability. In addition, as of 2013, installation has been completed on a 25 MW Green Energy turbo-generator which we currently use to sell power to BC Hydro, and starting in 2019 the development of an Industrial Park that leases properties to complementary businesses.
Nanaimo, located on the south-east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, is one of the premier locations for a pulp mill in the world. Nanaimo is also a great place to live. As the transportation, services, and health care hub for the central and north island, Nanaimo services the surrounding areas of over 100,000 people. Recreational opportunities are endless with access to extensive community recreation facilities and unmatched outdoor activities such as boating, skiing, biking, and golfing. Nanaimo is located just 20 minutes by floatplane from Vancouver and 90 minutes by Ferry.
