Statement From Mayor Paul Dyster:
Today the Chemours Co., which spun off from Dupont earlier this year, announced that as part of a global workforce reduction they will be ceasing operations at their Niagara Falls plant by the end of 2016. This decision will effect approximately 200 positions locally.
My initial concern is for ensuring the future employment of the employees and contractors at that facility. Already today, I have been in contact with the Company, Empire State Development, and other stakeholders in an effort to secure future operations at that site.
