|Firm to close Eugene factory||| Print ||
|Friday, April 20, 2012|
H.B. Fuller will close six newly-acquired adhesives factories, including one in Eugene.
When Fuller acquired Forbo’s adhesives business this March, including the Eugene facility, Fuller officials said there were “sizable opportunities to eliminate duplication in manufacturing and redundant services.” Fuller is a producer of adhesives, sealants, paints and other chemical products, which it sells to an international market.
A statement issued by Fuller on Wednesday said the decision to close the six plants was based on “a thorough review of the company’s now-combined operations” and that it would support the company’s growth plans. In addition to Eugene, factories scheduled to close by mid-2013 are in Quebec; Morris, Ill.; Kansas City, Kan.; Jackson, Tenn., and Dallas, Texas, as well as the former Forbo corporate and research offices in Morrisville, N.C.
