J. Skinner Baking today announced the closure of its manufacturing facility in Paris, Texas.
“The decision to close the Paris plant came after a strategic review of the competitive and economic environment, including raw material sourcing,” said Audie Keaton, President and CEO, J. Skinner Baking.
“Decisions that directly impact the lives of our employees are extraordinarily difficult; however, for the long-term health and competitiveness of J. Skinner Baking the Company has decided to consolidate its operations in its Nebraska facilities. This decision was not easily made, and in no way reflects on the dedication or performance of our colleagues at the Paris facility.”
In further explaining the Company’s decision, Keaton said the decision to close the plant will affect all salaried and hourly employees at the facility and that support will be provided. He also reiterated that the J. Skinner Company will continue delivering the highest possible quality, customer service and innovation to its customers and consumers.
