Tembec isn’t alone in its decision to close some of its facilities. Norampac has followed suit with a decision to cease operations at its Montrealbased corrugated products plant during the second quarter of 2006. The decision is part of a reorganization plan the company has implemented, which includes an investment plan totaling close to $30 million.
Roughly 215 people will be put out of work as a result of the closure, however, the company is developing a relocation program to make sure that as many employees as possible will be able to secure a position within one of the company’s divisions. The plant’s limited potential for expansion was cited as the primary reason for the decision.
