Nearly two dozen employees are losing their jobs at a Cook County agricultural plant.
Wednesday BASF officials told employees the plant is reducing its workforce by 13-percent or 22 positions immediately.
The site is part of BASF's crop protection division which did not renew a contract with a company for which it has been producing agricultural products at the facility for the past five years.
They say the arrangement was not profitable. The lower production volume means fewer employees are needed.
The company is providing outplacement assistance to the employees who are losing their jobs.
Here is a release issued by Site Manager Lisa Toole:
Today BASF informed employees at its Sparks, Georgia site that effective immediately it is reducing the number of positions at the site by 13 percent or 22 positions.
The site is part of BASF's Crop Protection division which has made a business decision not to renew a contract with a company for whom it has been producing agricultural products for the past five years at the facility.
The arrangement had proven unprofitable and renewing the contract was not a viable business option for BASF.
With this decision, the volume of production at the BASF plant in Sparks has decreased. Therefore, fewer employees are needed at the facility to meet our remaining manufacturing requirements.
The company is making every effort to limit the impact of this decision on our employees and minimize the number of employees affected.
For those who will be affected, BASF will provide outplacement assistance, information regarding open positions within the community and the company, and counselors that the terminated employees may work with immediately.
This decision in no way reflects the hard work and dedication of employees at the Sparks site. Our employees are key to the ongoing success of our business and the Sparks plant and BASF continues to value the site as critical for its Crop Protection business.
For instance, recent installation of new capital allowed BASF to minimize the number of employees impacted.
