Oxbow Calcining to reduce workforce

LEMONT – Oxbow Midwest Calcining LLC (“OMC”) is reducing its workforce from 66 to 21 employees in order to adjust to difficult market conditions. The 42-year old facility was purchased by Oxbow Carbon LLC in 2008. It produces industrial grade calcined petroleum coke, an ingredient used in the manufacturing of titanium dioxide and specialty chemical products.

“This is a very sad day for me,” said Brett Wilshire, Plant Manager for the Lemont Calciner. “Our employees have been diligent and taken great pride in their product. They have made this facility a great place to work. But the sad reality is our business, like so many others, has become a victim of a tough economy.”
