North Toledo company to close idling 70 people


A north Toledo packaging plant that made boxes for area industries will close by the end of the year because of a lack of work, a spokesman for the company said.

About 70 people employed by Delaware, Ohio-based Greif Inc. at a plant on

Matzinger Road will lose their jobs in December, company spokesman Deb

Strohmaier said.

We ve been looking at whole network of container plants and adjusting the network to where the business is, and the business in the Toledo area hasn t been good for a long time, Ms. Strohmaier said. We just can t keep losing money.

Among the plant s former customers was toilet maker American Standard Co. Inc. s plant in Tiffin, which closed earlier this year, Ms. Strohmaier said.
