Purchase Options:

The data is available as an Annual Subscription with quarterly data updates, or as a one-time purchase of the Mill Capacity Database “Snapshot.” Both options include GIS shapefiles for mapping. You may opt to receive the full database for all of North America (US and Canada), or you may choose to receive a single-region database.

Discounted rates are available for companies that also subscribe to the Forisk Research Quarterly (FRQ). Contact Heather Clark (hsclark@forisk.com) for additional information and pricing.

A subscription to Forisk’s Mill Capacity Database runs for one year (4 quarters). The Mill Database Subscription is published in February (Q1), May (Q2), August (Q3), and November (Q4). At each quarterly publication, subscribers receive an updated Excel database and GIS shapefiles, as well as notes detailing all of the mill updates since the last quarterly publication. The Mill Database Subscription provides historic capacity and ownership timelines, as well as announced/planned capacity and ownership changes for the next two years.
