Sandusky plant to close in 06, idle 270

FREMONT Poor sales and a troubled automotive industry

will result in the closing next year of a parts plant in this

Sandusky County city, displacing 270 workers, the owner said


TRW Automotive s Kelsey-Hayes subsidiary told workers

at its Kingsway factory that it plans to consolidate its brake

rotor production at other plants in North and South America,

and shutter the local factory by December, 2006.

An executive said the plant does not have enough business

to keep operating, and pricing and competitive pressures have

compounded the situation.

The $12 billion company said it would assist workers in fi nding

new employment. A United Steelworkers of America leader

at the Fremont factory declined comment last night.
