Glass manufacturer temporarily shuts down
Tuesday, December 16, 2008
Saint-Gobain Containers shut down its second furnace Monday in the second phase of a temporary layoff at the glass plant as a result of economic pressures.

The first furnace shut down the last week of November, and part of the workforce was temporarily laid off then.

On Monday, the second phase of the "inventory management downtime" took effect with the plant shutting down its second furnace and laying off its remaining workers.

The plant on Firestone Parkway employs 350.

Workers are expected to return in the beginning of the year, after inventory has been adjusted, said Gina Behrman, manager of corporate communications for Saint-Gobain Containers Inc.
