Stoneridge Announces Closure of Canton, Mass. Manufacturing Facility by the End of 2019 - Streamlining Operations and Engineering Footprint


NOVI, Mich., Jan. 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Stoneridge, Inc. (NYSE: SRI), a leader in highly engineered electrical and electronic components for the commercial vehicle and automotive industry, announced today that it will consolidate its manufacturing operations and close its Canton, Massachusetts facility by the end of 2019. The plant closure is part of an initiative to realign its operations and engineering footprint to position the Company for future growth. 

"This has been a difficult decision that has been made after extensive consideration and a thorough assessment of our business and operations," said Tony Moore, Vice President of Operations. "We are a proud, long-standing member of the Canton business community and we are committed to helping employees transition to new work.  Our focus will be on supporting our affected team members through this transition and ensuring we continue to provide world-class support to our customers."

The Canton site manufactures a variety of products including sensors, actuators, switches and other components for automotive and commercial vehicle applications.  As part of the decision to close the facility, the Company is reviewing strategic alternatives for certain non-core products.  Over the next few months, the Company will begin to consolidate operations and engineering capabilities to other existing site locations. The Company is committed to continue delivering high-quality products to its customers, both during and after the transition.

"We continue to evolve and position ourselves to meet and exceed the expanding needs of our global customers," added Bob Willig, President of Control Devices Division. "We are positioning our resources to drive value for our customers, shareholders and employees by focusing on system-based solutions, global engineering capabilities and an efficient, global manufacturing footprint."
