NORTH BAY, ON — The Stowe Woodward plant in North Bay, Ont., is closing as a result of reorganization at its parent company, Xerium Technologies, Inc. Xerium manufactures clothing and roll covers used in paper production.

It is expected that production at the North Bay location will cease by August 20, 2010. Local news sources report that 31 jobs will be lost.

Xerium president Dave Pretty lays the blame on paper industry contraction which reduces the demand for roll covers.

Stowe Woodward has eight other facilities in North America and Mexico. The company went through a brief period of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.
