Rimowa lays off 149 at Cambridge plant

CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — A luxury luggage manufacturer is laying off 149 workers at its plant in Cambridge, Ont.

Rimowa, a German-based luggage maker, says the decision to cut the jobs was made to ensure the plant remains profitable.

The company says it regrets the impact the layoffs will have on Cambridge residents.

The Cambridge plant, established in 2008, was Rimowa’s first facility in North America.

Rimowa said at the time that setting up shop in Canada was due to the skill of Canadian workers.
