Guardian Glass intends to close its Milbury plant in the state of Ohio, USA.
The float glass manufacturer filed a WARN notice to the state of Ohio stating that it intends to close its Millbury fabrication plant on State Rt. 795 and will start eliminating the jobs of its 100 employees on or about November 20.
The move will result in job losses for 77 hourly and 23 salaried employees who work at the plant, located at 24145 W. Moline Martin Rd. near Woodville Road in Millbury.
In its filing with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Guardian Glass, based in Auburn Hills, Mich., gave no explanation for the closing but called it a business decision. The plant makes consolidated glass, mirrored glass, and vacuum insulated glass.
Guardian said it expects to begin eliminating jobs starting on November 20 and will continue to lay off workers in phases through the closure. Employees are not represented by a union.
