A. Schulman, Inc., supplier of plastic compounds and resins, is moving some of the capacity from its Crumlin, South Wales, U.K. production facility to two other, larger plants in Europe. Several production lines at the U.K. facility will be shut down and about 30 jobs eliminated.

Approximately 10,000 tons of masterbatch production will be moved from Crumlin to more cost-efficient, higher-capacity lines in Bornem, Belgium and Givet, France.

A. Schulman will continue to enhance the capabilities of the Crumlin plant to produce smaller lots of colors and other specialty compounds for the local market. The company recently invested $1.2 million in a versatile continuous mixer for specialized products at the Crumlin facility.

A. Schulman also announced two personnel moves in Europe consistent with its integration of operations from its ICO Polymers acquisition. In the U.K., Robert Stanworth, who heads A. Schulman's U.K. operations, assumes responsibility for the ICO Polymers facility in Gainsborough, England. In France, Heinrich Lingnau, business unit leader for ICO Polymers in Europe, becomes responsible for managing ICO Polymers' three production facilities in France, in addition to managing A. Schulman's operations in France.
