Bennettsville Plant closure in North AmericaCorporate Investors
The company announced it will close the MDF production facility located in Bennettsville, South Carolina, effective on May 18, because it has plants that are more efficient in meeting market needs.
This measure involves people who have worked at ARAUCO with commitment and dedication, therefore several actions are being taken to provide maximum support during this time of transition.
The Bennettsville plant closure is an addition to the particleboard line closure at Moncure, North Carolina, and the MDF plant closure in Eugene, effective on May 1. In both cases, the decision was also based on an in-depth analysis regarding efficiency and production capacity in a highly competitive market.
