HuhtamÃ¤ki Oyj, the global consumer packaging company, plans to cut 90 jobs at a rigid container plant in Northern Ireland.
Espoo-based HuhtamÃ¤ki announced it has opened talks with trade union representatives of workers at its Portadown plant, which now employs 190.
The company said it intends to continue production with a reduced workforce at the former Polarcup business site, which thermoforms polypropylene containers.
The company has plants nearby in Gosport, England, and Lurgan, Northern Ireland.
Since HuhtamÃ¤ki first announced plans to restructure almost a year ago, it has closed a thermoforming and injection molding plant in Leeds, England, switching some jobs to Gosport, and is in the process of shutting down its expanded polystyrene molding facility in Skelmersdale, England.
