After six years of its doors being closed, the Pembroke MDF fibreboard plant is up and running once again.

The official re-opening was yesterday when it was announced that an infusion of up to $3-million in federal funding would be used to upgrade the facility and purchase new equipment.

Pembroke MDF is expected to create as many as 160 full-time jobs, as well as spin-off employment in the local forestry, transportation, and electrical fields.

The plant was formerly known as ATC Panels, and was open from 1997 to 2006 when the doors were closed because of increasing costs, and a drop in demand for fibreboard.
