HAHNVILLE, La. — Dow Chemical will close a plant here, cutting 40 jobs.
The closure of the peroxymeric chemical plant was announced in a news release Wednesday. It comes as Dow Epoxy announced its exit from the business of making the product, which is used in products ranging from electrical equipment to roofing material.
The PXC plant is one of 16 production facilities at the Hahnville site that employ 2,000 employees and contractors, the statement said.
Employees at the plant will have the opportunity to work elsewhere in the complex, which is owned by Union Carbide, a Dow subsidiary.
