Transcontinental to close Moncton printing plant
MONCTON, N.B.—Transcontinental has announced it is closing its Moncton printing plant, one of six it operates in the Atlantic provinces.

The closure, which takes effect December 17 will affect approximately 30 employees who will be given severance packages and possibly the option of working at the company’s Dartmouth, Nova Scotia facility, according to a press release.  The decision to close the plant was made because of increased efficiencies and decreased demand in the niche markets served by the plant, said the company release.

Transcontinental is also closing its 1485 Coulomb, Boucherville, Québec, printing plant as of December 17 this year. Some 180 employees will be affected in this move.
