Arclin closing North Bay resin plant

By: Northern Ontario Business staff

Published reports from North Bay say that Georgia-based Arclin is closing its resin adhesives manufacturing plant on June 27 and laying off 39.

The company claims changing marketing conditions and a stale North American home building market over the last few years, especially in Canada.

The North Bay plant was operating at reduced capacity.

The plant, formerly operated by Dynea and Neste, was acquired by Arclin in 2007. The company went into bankruptcy protection in 2009. That same year, Arclin shuttered its Thunder Bay facility, forcing out 28 people.

The company’s products are used mainly in construction, mining, oil and gas, and the agricultural sectors.
