Cancarb Unaffected by Recent Alberta Flooding

June 27, 2013 - It is business as usual at Cancarb despite recent flooding in southern Alberta due to last week's heavy mountain rains and their downstream effects.

"We continue to operate our carbon black and power production normally and all carbon black shipments are being made as scheduled," said Dave Petrie, Cancarb's President and COO. "The outcome could have been different if not for the preparations made by the City of Medicine Hat, assisted by many citizen volunteers, to preserve services critical to our operation."
