CAMPBELL’S SOUP Announces Shut Down Of Canadian Plant…Moving Production To U.S.

The Trump effect…

Another company moves production back to the U.S. from a foreign country.

The Campbell Soup Company announced Wednesday that it will shut down its Toronto plant and move operations to its three U.S. factories.

The move will result in nearly 400 lost manufacturing jobs at the plant, which has been in operation since 1931. The Toronto plant will be closed in phases over the next 18 months and production moved to Maxton, N.C.; Napolean, Ohio; and Paris, Texas.

Mark Alexander, the president of Americas Simple Meals and Beverages, Campbell’s parent company, said the closing was “a difficult one” that was “the best course of action for our business.”

“We are operating in an increasingly challenging environment as our industry’s consumer and retail landscapes continue to change dramatically,” he said in a statement.

Ana Dominguez, president of Campbell’s operations in Canada, told the Toronto Star that one reason for the closing is the company has too much soup and not enough customers.

“Simply put, we are in a situation where we can produce a lot more soup than we can sell,” she said. –UPI

A voluntary contribution of $1.5 billion to the FedEx pension plan to ensure it remains one of the best funded retirement programs in the country.

Investing $1.5 billion to significantly expand the FedEx Express Indianapolis hub over the next seven years. The Memphis SuperHub will also be modernized and enlarged in a major program the details of which will be announced later this spring.
