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.
