Minnesota manufacturer cuts costs

Published on .

Chaska, Minn.--Materials management company Entegris Inc. said it would close a manufacturing facility in Chanhassen, Minn., and centralize manufacturing at plants in Chaska and Kulim, Malaysia. About 7% of its work force, or 130 positions, will be eliminated as a result of the moves. Jim Dauwalter, Entegris president-CEO, said the consolidation would allow the company “to respond faster and smarter to the rapidly changing business environment in the semiconductor market.” Entegris produces materials used in such industries as semiconductors, data storage, chemical processing and pharmaceuticals.
