[GreenYes] Re: Wellman Inc. closes South Carolina PET fiber plant


Here is an article from The State (Columbia, SC) citing cheap Chinese
imports:

I also found this:

Sept. 27 -- Wellman Inc. is closing its PET fiber plant in Johnsonville, S.C.,
in an attempt to improve its financial performance.

Shrewsbury, N.J.-based Wellman also plans to sell its material recycling
division, which converts post-consumer PET bottles to flake in Johnsonville.
A sale of the firm´s European PET resin and fiber assets in Emmen,
Netherlands, and Mullagh, Ireland, also is possible.

Wellman´s fiber production will be consolidated into its plant in Florence,
S.C., officials said in a Sept. 26 news release. The closing will eliminate
about 350 jobs, although some jobs could be transferred to the Johnsonville
site, Wellman investor relations officer Michael Bermish said in a phone
interview.

The closing is expected to be complete by the end of the year, Bermish said.
Wellman will continue to operate a plant in Johnsonville that makes
compounds based on recycled nylon. That plant employs about 200.

only complicated stupid moves which make us wonder at the possibility that
there may be something to them which we are missing. - Gamal Abdel Nasser
