Weather-Tite to close plant in Middle River

January 19, 1993|By Ross Hetrick | Ross Hetrick,Staff Writer

Weather-Tite Manufacturing Co., which made viny replacement windows for the past four years in Middle River, will close its plant in mid-February, eliminating 85 jobs.

The Philadelphia-based company is closing the local plant to consolidate its operations in a new 125,000-square-foot building in Bensalem, Pa., outside of Philadelphia, said Steve Short, operations manager for the Middle River plant.

The local operation's 85-member work force has been reduced to 38 since the fall, Mr. Short said. Six workers will be transferred.

The company has a total work force of about 300 to 350, Mr. Short said.

Weather-Tite has been operating in Middle River since 1989, when it bought the Acuvinyl plant. In addition to replacement windows, the operation made steel entry doors and insulated glass, Mr. Short said.
