Racine binding company to close in November

Harold Whiteside, vice president of business development and marketing with Samuel Strapping Systems, the Ontario, Canada-based corporate parent of ISP Stitching, said the Racine operations are being closed because of the continuing deteriorations of the binding industry in North America. “This was a tough decision,” he said. “Between the economy as it’s been and the impact of offshore product coming into the U.S., it’s become necessary to close the facility.”
