Former Spartech manufacturing facilities are ‘redundant’ after takeover in March

US polymer specialist PolyOne is to close six manufacturing sites, with the loss of 250 jobs by the end of 2014. The move is part of a planned restructuring after PolyOne acquired Spartech in March of this year.

All of the facilities being closed are former Spartech sites. These facilities are now redundant, the company says, and their production will be relocated to other PolyOne sites.
