FIRST ON 3: Leland plant losing 90 jobs to Mexico
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County factory will start eliminating jobs over the course of the next year. Instead, the jobs will head south of the border.
A spokesman for Victaulic says the company will cut 90 positions over the next seven months to a year at its plant near Leland.
Victaulic VP for Marketing & Communications Eric Luftig says the company continually reviews its operations to ensure it is able to serve customer’s needs completely and cost effectively. So the piping company says cuts will be made to the rubber molding and press fit areas of its plant off US 74/76.
Those operations will be moved to Mexico.
‘We are offering a very generous financial and benefits package for all employees impacted by this move,” Luftig said in a statement. “We are also working closely with the North Carolina Division of Employment Security to make sure outplacement services will be provided for those impacted by this change.”
Luftig said all other operations at the Leland plant will continue.
