VANCOUVER, Wash. – Associated Hygienic Products says it is closing its Vancouver, Washington, plant that makes disposable baby diapers and training pants.
The Vancouver Columbian reports that a federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification says some of the plant's 101 employees will be relocated to factories in Texas and Ohio. The newspaper says employees received layoff notices last week that the plant will close Nov. 27.
AHP said Monday that it's no longer economically feasible to keep operating the plant.
The Duluth, Ga.-based company is a subsidiary of Disposable Soft Goods International. Its products are sold as private-label or store brands in many major chains.
