KINGSEY FALLS, QUE. — Cascades will cease production at the Quebec City facility of its Norampac division by the end of 2009. Nearly 145 employees will be affected by the closure of the corrugated production plant.

Sales and distribution services at the Quebec plant will remain intact, and production will be redirected progressively towards the other Norampac Quebecbased plants.

“This decision was taken as a result of a significant decline in demand for corrugated products while taking into account the high number of Quebec-based plants owned by Norampac,” explains Marc- Andr Dpin, president and CEO of Norampac.

“The economic context has forced us to proceed with nearly 1,000 temporary or permanent layoffs in our plants and mills in the past year, either by major reorganizations or by plant closures,” he adds.
