Mold base and hot runner supplier Hasco America, Inc. has announced plans to phase out U.S. manufacturing operations.
“Our parent organization has been engaged in a worldwide strategic review of operations,” said Heike Zimmermann, president of Hasco America. “As a result of this review, Hasco decided to concentrate its U.S. operations on distribution rather than domestic manufacturing.”
As a result, Hasco America will eliminate approximately 40 of its 50 positions at its Arden, N.C. manufacturing plant. The company will also close a small facility in Valencia, Calif.
“Obviously, we are disappointed about the need to reduce our U.S. workforce,” said Christoph Ehrlich, Hasco’s international CEO. “We remain committed to servicing a growing U.S. market for our products.”
Hasco Canada, the company’s Canadian operation, is located in Toronto.
