  Company news

PPG’s Burlington plant will close on 1 May
PPG’s Burlington plant will close on 1 May, cutting about 30 jobs. The glass manufacturer announced the impending closure to employees last week.
The 29 employees affected will be given an opportunity to transfer to PPG manufacturing plants in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and Wichita Falls, Texas.
The Burlington plant, which began operations in 1988, manufactures tempered flat glass and custom, cut-size annealed glass for the residential, solar and appliance markets.
Company officials blamed the closure on the selling of PPG's Mount Zion, Illinois, glass manufacturing facility last year. That plant was the Burlington plant's largest supplier of raw glass.
