WILLIAMSPORT - Fujicolor Processing Inc. will close its Williamsport plant on March 12, a Fuji spokeswoman said Friday.
Darla Camman, director of customer service and sales administration for Fujicolor Processing, said the closing will affect 125 nonunion employees, including labor and management. Severance packages will be offered, she said.
"In an effort to streamline our distribution network and maximize efficiencies, the facility located in Williamsport, Md., will be closing," Camman said. "The decision to close the plant was extremely difficult. It is in no way a reflection of the performance of the associates or management of the facility, to whom the company is grateful for their years of excellent service and commitment."
Peter Thomas, executive director of the Western Maryland Consortium, said his organization will try to help employees who will be out of work find new jobs. Occupational retraining and rsum writing are among the services that the Western Maryland Consortium offers, he said.
