Honeywell in Amherstburg is suspending operations for at least two years and laying off approximately 75 employees. The company produces hydrofluoric acid at the plant.
The company said that it is taking this step because of lower demand for hydrofluoric acid, which is used in the production of fuels, refrigerants and other materials.
The production suspension will result in a layoff of most employees at the site beginning later this year and continuing through August 2014.
Spokesperson Peter Dalpe says that the layoffs will be conducted in phases, allowing the company to safely transition operations at the site. A few security and maintenance personnel will remain on-site.
The plant is currently undergoing regularly scheduled maintenance. Once completed, the plant will resume operations until it has depleted its current supply of raw materials.
