In the wake of Spartech purchase, PolyOne closing six plants

By: Frank Esposito

The closings — in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Missouri, Pennsylvania and Louisiana — will eliminate about 250 jobs and produce $25 million in annual savings for PolyOne, which ranks as North America's largest compounder and one of the region's largest resin distributors.
