MONTREAL: Intertape Polymer Group Inc. will shift work currently done at its plant in Truro, NS, to a factory in Utah as part of a North American reorganization.

The Nova Scotia plant will continue to make some products for the Montreal-based company, which manufactures plastic wrapping and tapes for packaging.

A plant in Kentucky will be closed and its production will be shifted to Illinois.

The company didn’t say how many people would be affected by the changes.

The company has a total of 19 locations employing 1,800 people, mostly in North America.

It has one manufacturing plant in Europe and 12 in North America.
