Lanxess Unit to Close in Sarnia

Lanxess is shutting down its Isobutylene Plant at Sarnia site as of August 1st.

Company spokesperson Amy Pietzak say the “I”  plant can no longer operate economically since Nova converted their operations to shale gas so it will cease operations after July 31.

She says affected employees have been cross-trained and will be placed in different positions throughout the site.
