Specialty polymer formulators PolyOne Corporation is planning to permanently shutter two facilities in North Carolina because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification (WARN) Act notices issued by the company on May 18. 

A company official said that the closure of PolyOne’s manufacturing site in Pineville and a warehouse in Charlotte is linked to the “result of the unforeseeable, dramatic downturn in business caused by the coronavirus natural disaster” in a letter to the state quoted by the Charlotte Business Journal

PolyOne’s production facility in Pineville manufactures specialty inks. 

Permanent layoffs are slated to take place on July 20. 34 workers will be impacted at the Pineville plant, the notices stated, and four employees will lose their jobs at the Charlotte warehouse.

The facilities will close by the end of this year, the Journal reported.
