Closing the plant will result in job losses for 77 hourly and 23 salaried employees who work at the plant, located at 24145 W. Moline Martin Rd. near Woodville Road in Millbury, OH, USA.

In its filing with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Guardian Glass, based in Auburn Hills, Mich., gave no explanation for the closing but called it a “business decision.” The plant makes consolidated glass, mirrored glass, and vacuum insulated glass.

Guardian said it expects to begin eliminating jobs starting on Nov. 20 and will continue to lay off workers in phases through the closure. Employees are not represented by a union.
The company said it will work closely with affected employees to minimize the impact of its decision.

The Millbury glass fabricating plant was constructed in 1959 at a cost of 250,000 USD and opened in the spring of 1960.
