Oct. 12–Timken Co. will close its steel plant in Wooster Township by the end of the year and consolidate operations into the Gambrinus plant in Stark County.

The Wooster Township plant, which at one time employed hundreds of workers, had been pared back to finishing and inspection of steel tube that was manufactured at Gambrinus. The tube was then shipped from the Wooster plant.

Only 36 hourly employees remained in Wooster, and they all will be offered jobs at Gambrinus, company spokesman Jeff Dafler said.

Employees won’t necessarily be doing the same kind of work as they did in Wooster, but they won’t be displacing Gambrinus workers either, Dafler said.
