Dés l'année suivante, en 1927, M. J. Macfarland engage M. A. Boudreau à temps plein comme directeur-adjoint des opérations à Chéticamp. M. Boudreau s'occupe particulièrement de la comptabilité de la compagnie, d'organiser le sondage et le creusage du havre à intervalles réguliers, d'escorter les pilotes dans nos eaux peu profondes et d'accompagner M. MacFarland dans ses démarches auprès d'Ottawa. Il demeure au service de la compagnie 28 ans, jusqu'en 1956. En 1932, l'Atlantic Gypsum cesse d'acheminer le plâtre de Chéticamp qui contenait alors trop de chaux et déménage ses équipements miniers à Dingwall dans les Hautes Terres du Cap-Breton. M. MacFarland réussit à maintenir la mine de Chéticamp en opération en négociant un contrat de 150 000 tonnes avec la British Plaster Company de Londres. Ce contrat et celui de 75 000 tonnes de la Canada Cernent de Montréal permettent de maintenir la mine de Chéticamp en vie j'usqu'en 1939.

Les bateaux de transport étaient: le Briarwood, le Maplewood, le Hazelwood, le Kingswood et le Brookwood.

English:
The following year, in 1927, Mr. J. MacFarland hired Mr. Boudreau full-time as assistant manager of mining operations for Chéticamp. He was primarily responsible for the accounts, but he also arranged for the sounding and dredging of the harbour at regular intervals and he assisted the captains escorting ships through shallow waters. He also helped Mr. MacFarland in his dealings with Ottawa. Mr. Boudreau remained with the mining company for 28 years until 1956. In 1932, the Atlantic Gypsum Company stopped shipping Chéticamp gypsum to the North American market because of its high lime content and moved its mining equipment to Dingwall in the Highlands of Cape Breton. Mr. Macfarland was able to continue operations in Chéticamp thanks to a 150,000-ton contract with the British Plaster Company of London. This along with a 75,000-ton contract with Canada Cement of Montreal allowed mining to continue in Chéticamp until 1939.

The ships involved with this transport were the Briarwood, the Maplewood, the Hazelwood, the Kingswood and the Brookwood.

In 1936, National Gypsum Limited, with its head office in Buffalo, New York purchased the assets of the Atlantic Gypsum Company, including its operations
