Published on 2005-01-11. Author : SpecialChem

BRAMPTON, Ontario -- Henkel Canada Corporation, Consumer Adhesives announced that it will close its Brampton manufacturing facility by the end of 2005 as a result of the global restructuring program recently announced by Henkel. The closing of the 225,000 square foot Brampton facility, which manufactures adhesives and sealants primarily under the LePage(R) brand, will impact approximately 140 employees.

Henkel Canada Corporation, Consumer Adhesives will continue to maintain sales, marketing, regulatory, and distribution in Canada. The 128-year old LePage brand will remain an important brand in Canada for Henkel, with product manufacturing integrated within other Henkel facilities.

Impacted employees will receive separation packages, which include severance and benefits continuation. The company will also work with union representatives, the community and government officials to ease the impact of the plant closing. In addition, Henkel will be working with its customers to make sure they are not impacted during the transition.

The Brampton facility will remain open until the end of 2005.

Henkel Canada Corporation, Consumer Adhesives, produces and markets a broad array of adhesive and home improvement products in Canada. Henkel Canada Corporation is part of the Henkel Group, a worldwide leader in Home Care, Personal Care, Adhesives, Sealants and Surface Treatments. With 50,000 employees worldwide, Henkel generated sales of 9.4 billion euros in 2003.
