Textile producer in B.C. says they will not return to B.A.C., after suffering from ‘extreme stress’
Textiles producer Saha textile in B, Canada, has agreed to an undisclosed deal with the B.I.N. to return to the province, but will not be allowed to import goods made in the province.
The company, which is based in Burnaby, has been struggling with low sales and a lack of investment from its owners in recent years.
The deal has also been criticized by B.N., which says it’s not enough for the textile company to have an “effective and sustainable business model.”
I [B.C.’s Office of the Independent Registered Occupational Health and Safety Commissioner] has stated that Saha’s practices are not compliant with the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations,” said Julie Zaidi, an assistant commissioner for the office.
“It is also clear that they are not in compliance with B.V.I.’s [British Columbia’s Occupational Medicine and Occupational and Health Council] regulations on medical and occupational safety.”
Saha said in a statement that it “continues to fight for a sustainable, high quality business model for the company” and plans to return.
“We have a lot of work to do to get back to the B,C.
market,” said CEO David Condon.
“There are very few textile companies in B., Canada that are going to compete with us.
We will continue to be active and engaged in the B.,C.
B.B.N.’s position is in line with the industry’s position, said David Mottram, a spokesperson for the Banting Mills, which owns Saha.
“They’ve got to get it right.
We’ll do what we can to protect our workers, our customers and our shareholders,” Mottra said.
“But we can’t continue to make our customers pay for it.
We’re just not making it right for our workers.”
Banting said in an email that it has been “working closely with Banting to resolve our issues with the textile manufacturer.”
“We are confident in our decision,” it added.
The Banting mills was founded in 1905 and produces cotton, wool and silk and also distributes products like textiles to retailers, such as Amazon, eBay and Walmart.
The plant closed in 2008.
Banting’s factory, located in Burnie, B.K., is one of seven textile plants across the province with at least one worker on permanent sick leave.
It employs about 3,400 people, and employs more than 8,000 people across the country.
“While we’re not a fully integrated company, the company is a global leader in the textile industry,” Banting CEO David Molloy said in April.
“At Banting we’re very proud of our workforce, our work environment and our commitment to our employees.”
But in the wake of the Bancroft ruling, Banting has struggled with a shortage of skilled workers and high costs of living, which have prompted the company to cut back on employee hours.
Bancrotts ruling has also forced some companies to look elsewhere for jobs.
A year ago, the Bantu Group, a company that supplies fabric and apparel to a number of retailers, shuttered its plant in Burnish after facing financial problems.
“In the end, we realized we needed to make a change in our business model to address our financial needs,” said Mark Zeebe, the founder and CEO of the company.
“So we’re going to be working closely with the government and the BANC [British Colombia Industrial Development] to address the issues that have been brought to light.”
