Damaged Japanese plywood mills to restart soon

The Japan Federation of Plywood Manufacturers has reported that six plywood mills which sustained considerable damage as a result of the recent earthquake and tsunami will restart partial production, probably in July.
In Ishinomaki the power supply was restored in late May but in other areas, such as Miyako and Ofunato, it will be some time before power is available once more and this will delay the resumption of production of mills in these areas.
