Indiana plant closing could cost 120 jobs

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A northern Indiana metal-casting factory is set to close, a move that could eliminate about 120 jobs in the coming months.

LaPorte Mayor Blair Milo said ATI Casting Services plans to begin shutting the factory down on June 18 and expects to end the closure process by the end of June.

ATI is housed in a plant that has been operating since the 1930s in the city about 25 miles west of South Bend. From the 1960s through the 1990s, the plant was operated by Teledyne Industries Inc. and had as many as 400 employees.

Milo told The LaPorte County Herald-Argus that local economic development officials will be meeting with the company to see whether any steps are possible to avoid the closure.

A letter from the company cites continued poor economic conditions for the closing decision.

  • LaPorte Tax problem
    chalk another business leaving after they got their " make up tax bill" good thing Dermody got that straightened out and Milo, well, she looks good in the blues fest dunk tank
  • Lies
    More job losses in this Obama "recovery".
  • Tax Dollars to the rescue
    Perhaps if we gave them a bunch of tax dollars we would avoid the closure. The sky is the limit on this you know.
