H.C. Brill plant in Lancaster to close next year; 120 jobs affected Bakery supplies operation previously was known as Henry & Henry

H.C. Brill's production plant in the Town of Lancaster, which employs 120 people, will close by the fourth quarter of next year, its parent company announced Tuesday.

CSM, which is based in the Netherlands, said the move is part of its strategy to concentrate its production in the United States. The Lancaster plant makes icings, fillings and other bakery ingredients.

CSM said the shutdown will be carried out in a "phased schedule" to ensure supply and service to its customers is not disrupted.

The Lancaster site's work will be transferred to other plants that are part of CSM Bakery Supplies North America, the company said.

A spokesperson for CSM could not immediately be reached for details about the company's timetable for closing the Lancaster site.

CSM has operations in Europe, North America, South America and Asia. Its North American bakery supplies business has been undergoing a reorganization since last year, which involved selling or closing some operations.

CSM in 1994 acquired baking supplies maker Henry & Henry, which it later added to its H.C. Brill unit as part of a consolidation of CSM's businesses.

Henry & Henry had moved its operations to Lancaster from Buffalo in the early 1980s.
