At the same time, this division is restructuring its Middle Georgia Kaolin operations in Sandersville, GA. Cuts to both operations and support will see roughly 50 positions eliminated -both IMERYS employees, as well as contractors.

The company cited a saturated graphic papers market, compounded by a constricting economy as changing the face of the pulp and paper industry, resulting in reduced demand for kaolin in the sector.
