Amcor Closing Deran Facility and Lay Off 180

Amcor Rigid Plastics will lay off 180 employees as it closes its plant in Delran Township, N.J., by the end of the year. Amcor acquired the facility in 2010 when it bought Ball Corp.’s plastic packaging operations in the Americas.

Amcor Rigid Plastics, formerly known as Amcor PET Packaging, is a leading manufacturer of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers in the Americas.  Customers include the food industry (dressings, sauces, and fruit and nut spreads) and beverage producers (soft drinks, water, juices, dairy, and spirits).  It also supplies non-food applications from household cleaners to liquid soap and lotion, hair care, pharmaceutical, automotive, and agro-chemical goods.

The Plant Prospector is a weekly e-mail service that identifies national, regional, and local plants and businesses in transition through layoffs, closings, and work force reductions. A reduction in the number of employees is an indication of a current or imminent change in the operations of an enterprise and is invaluable in identifying companies including private firms, small public companies, and subsidiaries of major corporations that are in flux. Plant Prospector is an ideal prospecting tool for firms that provide services to businesses in transition, such as temporary employment agencies and outplacement firms, and for companies whose business may be affected by change, such as suppliers, professional firms, and insurance companies.
