Northern Indiana plant to close, ending 120 jobs

LAPORTE, Ind. – A northern Indiana metal casting factory is about to close after 80 years, costing the jobs of about 120 workers.

Allegheny Technologies Inc. had planned to shutter the ATI Casting Service plant in LaPorte by the end of June after unsuccessfully trying to sell it. Company vice president Dan Greenfield said the factory is now in the process of shutting down after completing some outstanding orders.

United Steelworkers local president Donn Pendergrass told The Times of Munster (http://bit.ly/1mMWLto ) that about half the factory’s workers were laid off last month and the closure is expected to be finished by the end of August.

The factory once had more than 550 workers, but the company said the plant has been losing money.
