ORRVILLE, OHIO — The J.M. Smucker Co. plans to close its pickle production facility in Dunnville, Ontario, and its pickle tank farm in Delhi Township, Ontario, according to a Sept. 28 filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company plans to transition the majority of the production of its Bick’s pickles and other condiments products to its facility in Ripon, Wis., and to third-party manufacturers.

J.M. Smucker said it expects to incur restructuring charges of approximately $45 million over a two-year period. Nearly one-half of the restructuring charges are expected to be incurred in fiscal 2011, with the remaining charges anticipated to be incurred in 2012. The closing of the two facilities will result in a reduction of approximately 150 full-time positions.
