Promens Canada Inc. has announced plans to close one of its two rotational molding plants. The companys facility in Lindsay, Ont., is likely to finish production by the end of the first quarter of 2008, affecting approximately 80 workers.

Production will subsequently be divided among several other Promens plants.

Promens acquired the Lindsay facility in 2005. Lindsays manufacturing process consists of 20 per cent custom and 80 per cent proprietary products, according to Promens. The 100,000 sq. ft building houses 11 rotational molding machines.

The company still maintains a Canadian production facility in St. John, N.B.With approximately 60 manufacturing facilities in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa, Promens manufactures a wide range of plastics products, including packaging for food, cosmetics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals. The company employs some 5,800 people worldwide.
