Another plant is closing in Dalhousie New Brunswick, when the Olin Corporation chemical plant closes one hundred plus jobs will be lost. The AbitibiBowater Mill closes at the end of January.
Olin Corporation is based in Clayton Mo and will be closing its Canadian chemical manufacturing business in Dalhousie, N.B., by August.
Olin makes chemicals and ammunition and will close its chlorine, caustic soda and sodium hypochlorite operations by early June and its sodium chlorate operations in August, according to the CBC report.
Dalhousie has just experienced the closing of the AbitibiBowater mill which saw more than 300 people lose their jobs.
Olin says that a caustic soda storage and distribution terminal will begin operating in June at the Dalhousie facility.
The announcement by Olin was a surprise for many people.
"The electricity power rate is so high here in New Brunswick. It's not economical for them to keep going so they decided to shut down," Pat Roy of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union said
