KINGSEY FALLS, QC: Cascades Inc, a manufacturer of packaging and tissue paper products, is consolidating its operations and is permanently closing Cascades Enviropac, located in Toronto. Production at this unit, specialized in the manufacturing of Technicomb honeycomb packaging intended mainly for the furniture packaging industry, will be redirected towards the Cascades Enviropac Berthierville, Québec and the Grand Rapids, Michigan plants. About 36 employees will be affected by this closure which will be effective on June 1.

“The decision to cease operations at the Toronto plant is due to a significant reduction in business volume,” said Luc Langevin, President and COO of Cascades Specialty Products Group. “This decision was taken to secure the group’s profitability and to improve its position as leader in the industrial packaging sector.”
