Jun 20

BARRIE - Yachiyo of Ontario Manufacturing (YOM) in Barrie is being bought.

YOM employees were told Friday that a buyer has been secured for the Mapleview Drive West facility, a vehicle parts and accessories plant, which employs 350 full and part-time employees.

Matcor-Matsu Group, a private Canadian-based corporation, will assume ownership of the YOM facility on a target date of June 27, 2014.

The sale agreement provides that all current YOM employees have the chance to continue working with Matcor-Matsu, with no changes in wages and with benefits to remain comparable to those currently in place.
