Layoffs at Berry Plastics Corp. in Easthampton
Berry Plastics made the announcement today saying 26 employees would be losing their jobs.
“Due to the recent streamlining of manufacturing processes, coupled with soft consumer demand, Berry Plastics Corporation is reducing its hourly workforce,” explains Eva Schmitz, spokesperson for Berry Plastics Corporation.
The company which produces extruded tubes for a variety of markets employs about 350 people and is part of the Company’s Rigid Closed Top Division.
