Cascades Inc., Kingsey Falls, Que., Canada, reports the permanent closure of its Cascades Tissue Group plant located in Scarborough (McNicoll Street),Toronto. This unit specialized in paper napkins for the away-from-home market, mainly for quick service restaurants. Its production will be redirected to Laval, Que., and Waterford, N.Y., USA, plants, also specialized in that market. Approximately 30 employees will be affected by this closure, which is effective today, August 13.

This closure does not impact activities at Cascades’ Milliken Street plant, also located in Scarborough.

"In line with our restructuring actions to increase our operations' efficiency, this decision was taken to secure our position as leader in the away-from-home tissue paper sector. This initiative will enable us to maximize the production at Laval and Waterford plants, while continuing to offer a first-class product and service to our customers,, said Suzanne Blanchet, president and CEO of Cascades Tissue Group.

Cascades noted that it has taken necessary measures to provide support to employees affected by the closure.
