Butler foundry to close, throwing 138 out of work

April 24, 2008

Citation Corp. said today it will close its aluminum molding foundry in the northeast Indiana town of Butler, costing 138 workers their jobs.

The Novi, Mich., company said the closing, which begins in May, will allow it to focus on its ductile iron and die casting businesses. It also operates in Alabama, North Carolina and Wisconsin.

Citation acquired the Butler division from Bohn Aluminum Corp. in 1996.

Citation makes cast, machined and assembled components for automotive, heavy truck and industrial industries.
