Supremex will close its envelope facility in Edmonton in 2021, affecting 39 jobs.

This reduces the envelope manufacturer’s total workforce by five per cent. The company estimates the closure will save approximately $2.4 million.

“We deeply regret the effect that these measures will have on employees and their families, and wherever possible, we have worked with them on early retirement possibilities,” says Stewart Emerson, president and CEO of Supremex, in a statement.

“These cost-saving initiatives will allow us to limit the impact of the pandemic and ongoing secular decline on our legacy envelope business.”

The company acquired Royal Envelope in February 2020. Supremex operates 13 locations in six provinces and another three in the United States.
