The city of Leominster is losing another longtime injection molder, as Sportsmen's Plastics Inc. is auctioning off its building and machinery Jan. 25.
The auction, which will be onsite and online, is being handled by Joseph Finn Co of Newton, Mass. It includes the building, 26 presses and assorted auxiliary equipment.
The company was founded by brothers Amedeo and Dominic DiRusso in their garage in 1944.
The company had employed about 100 in early 2000, but that number dwindled to less than 50 recently. A call to the facility Jan. 9 disclosed that it is closed for production. No further details were available.
Leominster also lost Union Products Inc. and Holiday Housewares Inc. in late 2006.
