ATLANTA (Sept. 29, 3 p.m. ET) — Blow molder Consolidated Container Co. LLC has filed a notice that it plans to close its Elk Grove Village, Ill., plant.
In a July 5 notice to the state of Illinois under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice Act, the Atlanta-based company said 68 employees would be affected by the closing, which would begin Aug. 30 and end Sept. 12.
Company officials and those from the union representing Elk Grove employees were unavailable for comment. Telephone calls made to the plant in late September were not answered.
The plant closing would leave Consolidated with 61 plants in North America, according to Plastics News records. The company had sales of $780 million in 2010, up from $750 million in 2009. Consolidated ranked fourth among North American blow molders in PN's most recent industry survey.
