Flambeau to close Madison, Georgia facility, production moving to other company sites, including Indiana

MADISON, GEORGIA – Flambeau, Inc., President and CEO Randall Loga today announced a strategic action designed to reposition the company’s thermoplastic molding operations in North America. The announcement includes the permanent closure of the company’s Madison, Georgia, production facility where a variety of plastic parts and products are manufactured, largely for fluids, industrial, and retail markets. Flambeau will close the Madison facility between July 31 and Aug. 13.

“While closing a facility is accompanied by some unpleasant effects, the strategic closure of our Madison plant strengthens Flambeau’s vital economic position in the plastics industry,” said Loga. “To the advantage of our customers, the closure leverages Flambeau’s extensive capabilities and assets, and creates logistical advantages.”

Customer and proprietary products manufactured at the Madison facility will be moved to other production sites within Flambeau’s existing North American facility network, including its Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and Mexico plants. Flambeau has a facility in Columbus.

In order for Flambeau customers to experience consistent levels of quality and service through this process, a team of associates will remain in Madison until operations fully transition, within approximately 90 days after closure. The closure will unfortunately result in a workforce reduction of approximately 85 associates. Flambeau is providing various means of assistance during this difficult transition process.
