Gates to close
facility in Canada
Jan 15, 2009 11:18 AM
Gates Canada Inc will close its London, Ontario, Canada, power transmission facility in response to the difficult economic climate that has resulted in declining sales volumes, continued pricing pressures, and higher raw material costs, according to Gates information.
The company, based in Denver CO, plans to transition a portion of its operations to its facility in Windsor, Ontario, by the end of the second quarter of 2009. Full closure of the facility is expected by December 2009 to allow for completion of production to meet customer requirements. There are 179 associates at the London facility that has been in operation since its move from Strathroy, Ontario, in 1999.
