Before the end of September, Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation’s corrugated container facility in Rexdale, ON will close down.

Roughly 129 hourly and 10 salaried employees will lose their jobs as a result of the closure, which the company confirms is part of its overall strategic plan, designed to ‘improve overall performance and customer satisfaction.’

Nearby Smurfit-MBI facilities will accommodate existing business at the Rexdale facility.
