UPDATE: The Plain Dealer reports that the work performed at the Solon plant will be moved to a plant in Georgia.
The newspaper also reports that no date has been set for when the Solon plant will close.
A Solon plant owned by Dow Chemical plans to close as the industry giant embarks on a restructuring effort.
The Solon plant, a Dow subsidiary called Poly-Carb Inc., is one of roughly 20 plants the company is shutting down, reports the Associated Press. The Solon plant is located on Bainbridge Road.
The plant closings, which include shedding about 2,400 jobs, come as the company is dealing with a global economic slowdown that's cut into its business.
The Solon plant was sold to Dow in 2007. It makes materials used in roads and bridges and other infrastructure projects, according to AP.
The plant had roughly 40 jobs when it was sold to Dow, according to the AP. It's unclear how many it has now.
