CUMBERLAND – Portola Packaging, Inc. will shut down its Portola Tech International cosmetics container division by the end of August, releasing all of its employees and liquidating manufacturing equipment.

Workers were apparently caught off-guard when they learned they were being let go several days ago.
“It’s shocking,” the spokeswoman said.
