Unimin Plant ClosingMidland | by Ken Hashizume
The Midland silica processing facility will cease operations putting 18 people out of work
A long-time manufacturer in Midland is closing its plant.
Unimin Canada Limited announced yesterday that they will cease operations at their silica-processing facility on Bayshore Drive at the end of June.
The decision to close the plant was due to the fluctuating sales volumes and the availability of inventoried feedstock.

The move will see 18 people out of work.
