Belden has announced it will shut down activities at its Pointe-Claire, Que. facility, a decision which it says is necessary because of production over capacity worldwide. The closing, which takes effect next April, will affect some 200 employees.

The company will continue research and development, product development and marketing activities in Pointe-Claire as well as a centre of excellence that focuses on enterprise communication technology.

Going forward, the company will have approximately 100 employees in the area.

“It is with regret that we announce today the reduction of some of our activities,” said Guylaine Branchaud, Belden’s human resources manager in Pointe-Claire.

“We are fully aware of the impact of this decision on our employees and their families. In this difficult time, an employee assistance service is available at all times.”
