Raleigh Canada to end production at Quebec facility
In a statement today, Raleigh Canada announced it will be ceasing manufacturing and assembly at its Waterloo, Quebec, facility. The facility will remain open as a warehousing and distribution center.
Raleigh Canada's Waterloo facility has manufactured and assembled bicycles on a seasonal basis for over 30 years. Manufacturing and production employees at the Waterloo facility will continue to be actively employed until they are laid off at the end of the normal seasonal production cycle in June 2013. As a result of Raleigh Canada's decision to cease its bicycle manufacturing and assembly activity, approximately 100 production employees will not be recalled from their normal seasonal layoff in January 2014.
