THE MACMILLAN BLOEDEL AND TJ INTERNATIONAL ACQUISITIONS—combined with last year's purchase of the Dryden, Ontario, facilities—provide the foundation for our near-term growth. Dryden enhances our position in uncoated free sheet. MacMillan Bloedel adds to our containerboard and structural wood product lines. And our acquisition of TJ International makes us the leader in engineered wood—a market with high-margin products and solid growth potential.

Because we've now enhanced our key product lines, our near-term priorities involve:

  • Making these acquisitions an effective part of our operations.

  • Expanding and making our existing facilities more efficient. This includes using new technologies and involving our employees to help us work smarter.

  • Obtaining the maximum value from our timber harvest.

  • Operating as a North American company. To reflect this perspective in our decision-making process, our senior leadership structure now includes an additional Canadian presence. Richard F. Haskayne, former chairman of Macmillan Bloedel, became a member of our board in February 2000. He joins two other directors with Canadian heritage, the Rt. Hon. Donald F. Mazankowski and Arnold G. Langbo. In addition, our Senior Management Team now includes C. William Gaynor, senior vice president-Canada.
