Valeo to Close its Rochester Facility

Valeo announced that its Valeo Electrical Systems Inc., VESI, subsidiary in North America has taken the decision to close the Rochester, New York, facility in the light of the rapidly worsening financial situation of the plant. Discussions have been opened with the IUE-CWA Local 509 Union in order to reach an agreement on the implementation and effects of the decision to close the facility.

PARIS, FRANCE — Valeo announced that its Valeo Electrical Systems Inc., VESI, subsidiary in North America has taken the decision to close the Rochester, New York, facility in the light of the rapidly worsening financial situation of the plant. Discussions have been opened with the IUE-CWA Local 509 Union in order to reach an agreement on the implementation and effects of the decision to close the facility.

The Rochester facility is almost entirely dedicated to the manufacturing of wiper systems. The rapidly deteriorating situation is primarily due to the ongoing dramatic reduction in the plant’s main customer’s business activity.

Both the Union and Management are working to ensure that there will be no interruption to the supply of quality products to our customers. Valeo will remain a major supplier of wiper systems in North America and production will continue in other existing Valeo facilities.
