W. Ind. packaging plant to close, costing 150 jobs

---- — TERRE HAUTE (AP) — A company that owns a western Indiana packaging plant intends to close that Terre Haute factory at the end of the year, costing about 150 workers their jobs.

Multi Packaging Solutions says in a required notice of the planned closure filed Friday with the state Department of Workforce Development that the plant is being closed due to a "dramatic decline" in work available for packaging for audio and video products.

The Tribune-Star reports that Multi Packaging Solutions will permanently close its Terre Haute plant on Dec. 31 and that 150 employees will be terminated.

Terre Haute Economic Development Corp. president Steve Will says the pending closure "is absolutely disappointing news" because the company is a long-time employer in the community.
