As Part of its Strategic Plan, Caesarstone Announces Closure of Richmond Hill Manufacturing Facility.

In a press release shared Wednesday, December 13, 2023, Caesarstone announced that effective mid-January 2024, the Company’s restructuring plan would entail closing the facility in Richmond Hill, thus contributing savings of approximately $20 million annually by optimizing its manufacturing footprint.

“As a valued member of our business community, Caesarstone’s business decision to close its facility in Richmond Hill due to the need to optimize its global manufacturing footprint is disappointing news for us here in Bryan County, says Development Authority of Bryan County Chairman, Jon Seagraves, and Richmond Hill Mayor, Russ Carpenter, in a joint statement released today.

As part of the Development Authority of Bryan County’s ongoing work to aid in the development of our local workforce, many resources have been created to help industries find qualified employees. Visit the map on our homepage to view open positions in our local industries.

“Companies sometimes have to make difficult decisions, and we will miss having them as part of our business community. We are working with the company to help affected employees find the right fit at other area businesses that can certainly use their skill sets. While this is an unfortunate development, the good news is that we have many manufacturing jobs available in the region that could deliver new opportunities for these hardworking Caesarstone alumni,” adds Seagraves.
