Remaining spark plug work leaving Fostoria

FOSTORIA The Autolite division of Honeywell International Inc. will transfer all remaining spark plug production at its manufacturing plant here to Honeywell facilities in South Carolina and Mexico, resulting in the loss of about 170 jobs.

Only about 100 workers will remain at the Fostoria plant, which once employed 1,200, to continue making insulator products.

In 2007, Honeywell began phasing out spark plug assembly in Fostoria by moving 520 jobs and its standard spark plug line to Mexicali, Mexico. Production of longer-lasting, more-expensive spark plugs had remained in Fostoria until the recent move to end all spark plug assembly at the plant.
