PGW Announces Hawkesbury Plant Closure (posted 5/12/09)
“We regret that the decision to close our Hawkesbury fabrication facility adversely affects the lives of many of our trusted associates and their families,” said Jim Wiggins, president and chief executive officer. “We are responding to fundamental change in the global automotive OEM business that requires suppliers to adjust production and capacity downward to match the significant demand reductions coming from our customers. We are convinced that the steps we are taking are necessary to insure the long-term viability of our business and to prepare the company for the challenges immediately ahead.”
