CHESTERFIELD, MO. (Feb. 10, 12:15 p.m. ET) — Silgan Plastics is shuttering a facility in Breinigsville, Pa., according to a document filed with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.

The company said that the planned closure will affect 30 employees and that it will be completed on or before April 30. In the letter to the state, the company pointed to the cause as a restructuring of its manufacturing operations.

The company did not return calls seeking comment.

Silgan Plastics, which is based in Chesterfield, Mo., is a subsidiary of Silgan Holdings Inc. of Stamford, Conn.

According to its latest 8K filing, Silgan’s “plastic container business continued to experience higher costs associated with resolving operational issues from recent restructuring activities along with volatility in the resin market and a less favorable mix of sales.”

Silgan Plastics has 20 plants according to the filing.
