Kampack Inc. is closing its facility in Newark New Jersey, according to a federal WARN notice, potentially costing nearly 100 workers their jobs. The company said in the notice that up to 97 employees face termination by the end of August as the company ceases operations. However, the notice said a new company, Delaware Corrugated Packaging, would be created in Dover, Delaware, and Kampack expects 20-22 of its workers to accept employment there.
The notice said jobs and benefits would be unchanged for transferring employees, but salary rates would be “slightly lower” for hourly workers. Union workers would receive benefits including vacation pay, severance and pension rights, among others. Non-union workers would also receive certain benefits, including severance.
With a 50-year history of excellence, and over a half-million square feet under roof, and a complete suite of equipment, products and solutions in its multiple state-of-the-art facilities, Kampack Inc. (formerly known as Mannkraft) is one of the leading independent corrugated packaging producers in the Northeastern United States.
