A Johnson City facility which manufactures several different types of tape will close sometime during 2019, according to Ross Marshall who is with investor relations for Intertape Polymer Group, Inc.

Cantech Industrial will close its doors in the first half of 2019. Marshall said employees were notified that the Johnson City facility will be closing. The facility originally opened in 1983 and the closure will impact about 70 employees. The choice to close was a business decision.

Cantech is owned by Intertape Polymer Group, Inc. which is based in Montreal, Canada.
