About a month after H.B. Fuller announced they had bought Forbo Adhesives for $394 million, they are starting to trim what they see as 'fat' and another West Tennessee factory is going to close as a result. Jackson's Forbo plant is one of six facilities that Fuller has decided to close. Others are located in Pointe-Claire, Quebec; Morris, Ill.; Kansas City, Kan.; Eugene, Ore; and Dallas, TX. Forbo Adhesives produced $580 million in revenue last year. The company says it will consolidate their adhesive operations within facilities in Kentucky, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas, California, Georgia, and Washington. Jackson workers will have the union option to take positions at those plants if available. The Jackson facility will close within the next year. If recent closings and layoffs have placed you or someone you know in a difficult financial situation, there may be legal remedies for your problems.
