Xerium initiates closure of Brazilian PMC facility

Aug '14
Xerium Technologies, Inc. a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services, announced that it has initiated closure proceedings with the representative union officials at its PMC facility in João Pessoa, Brazil.

Production following the closure will be transferred to the Company's PMC facility in Piracicaba, Brazil where there is sufficient capacity to handle João Pessoa's order volume and is strategically located with the ability to better serve the South American market from a logistics standpoint. Due to the nature of the proceedings with the local union, the Company is not able to provide a full estimate of the anticipated restructuring expenses at this time.

"We continue to take the required steps to achieve our multi-year repositioning plan to improve our sales, Adjusted EBITDA and share price. These initiatives are well under way and we are pleased with the actions to date and the confidence restored in Xerium both internally and externally. These actions will further strengthen our global responsiveness and competitive edge. These changes require difficult decisions that affect great people but these are very necessary actions given the economic realities of the markets we serve. As with our previous restructuring efforts, we have firm plans to save as many jobs as possible under these circumstances," said Harold Bevis, Xerium's President and Chief Executive Officer.

"We believe these actions will increase our competitiveness in South America, without sacrificing quality or our position in the market." About Xerium Xerium Technologies, Inc. is a leading global provider of industrial consumable products and services. 

Xerium utilizes a broad portfolio of patented and proprietary technologies to provide customers with tailored solutions and products integral to production, all designed to optimize performance and reduce operational costs.
