Union City Manufacturing Company Closes

The Ames True Temper manufacturing plant will close, laying off at least 30 full time employees.
A large employer in Union City is closing for good today. The Ames True Temper manufacturing plant will close, laying off at least 30 full time employees. True Temper manufactures lawn and garden tools. The company has been around since 1774.

The mayor of Union City says it's a disappointment but that they're not the only city with a True Temper that's closing its doors. Bill Hinkle, Union City Borough Mayor says, "For Union City it's just another big hit. We had tornados and giant fires and we've lost so many jobs here. It's a hit to the tax base and residents are going to feel the pinch. It's sad".
Union City officials say there have been at least 800 jobs lost over the last 15 years, with at least six factories closing their doors.
