Specialty chemical supplier Clariant International Inc. has completed its cost-cutting global restructuring initiative, and announced plans to close a series of production sites, including its facility in Delta, B.C.

The measures will also lead to the loss of up to 100 job positions worldwide, the company said.

In addition to shuttering its Delta B.C. site, Clariant will also close production sites at McHenry, Ill., and Sefakoy, turkey. In Guatemala City, Clariant plans to amalgamate three sites into a single production, warehousing and office facility. Finally, at Roha, India, and Shizuoka, Japan, individual production lines will be closed.

Also, research and development staff currently based at Reinach, Switzerland will transfer to Frankfurt, Germany. In France, the relocation of the Clariant French headquarters from Nanterre to Lamotte has been proposed and is being discussed with workers’ representatives.
