July 31, 2018 – Georgia-Pacific has announced it is closing its Dixie Cup manufacturing plant in Brampton, Ont by the end of its financial year.
The company told employees about the closure last week and said the decision was based on business needs and consumer demand. The closure affects 128 manufacturing workers and five customer service employees.
Some of the company’s customers in Canada are choosing to purchase from other cup manufacturers, said spokesman Kelly Ferguson.
The U.S. Dixie Cups manufacturing plants will remain open.
