Delphos plant to close

DELPHOS, Ohio — A Warren, Mich., food distributor will close a newly acquired plant in Delphos later this year, eliminating 175 jobs.

In a filing submitted to the state of Ohio, Lipari Foods said the layoffs were because of a major customer’s unexpected contract cancellation.

The company said layoffs would start no later than July 15. Most jobs are in Delphos, though a handful of employees in Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois also will lose their jobs.

Lipari Foods acquired the plant that was formerly I&K Distributors in April. In a May news release, Lipari said it would merge the Delphos operation with its Warren location.

Delphos straddles Allen and Van Wert counties about 85 miles southwest of Toledo.
