ERJ staff report (DS)
Fairlawn, Ohio -- Omnova Solutions has said it is eliminating approximately 50 million wet pounds (22.6 kt) of annual latex capacity at its Mogadore, Ohio plant. This reduction will be accomplished by consolidating production into available capacity in Mogadore and other Omnova latex facilities. Employment at the Mogadore plant will not be affected by this action, as the workforce has been reduced 20 percent in the past three years due to natural attrition.
Omnova makes GenTac - brand vinylpyridine (VP) latex products in Mogadore. It also makes styrene-butadiene latices for carpet backings in the Mogadore unit. Omnova makes latices for styrene-butadiene paper coatings under the GenFlo name, but does not specify where these products are made.
