Graymont has announced that it is idling the lime kiln operations at its Green Bay facility in Wisconsin, effective 1 June 2017, in response to the continued soft market conditions in North America.
The Great Lakes market will continue to be fully supplied by other lime plants in the company’s network, while the Green Bay facility will be converted into a bulk hydrate and terminal operation.
The idling of the Green Bay plant lime kilns will, unfortunately, result in the lay-off of the majority of the twenty-nine employees at the plant, with approximately half a dozen employees remaining to operate the restructured operation. The kilns will remain idled until market conditions improve.
