Fabri-Form facility in Byesville slated to close

Around 40 workers given news of layoffs on Friday


BYESVILLE, Ohio -- A Byesville factory will be closing its doors early next year.
The Byesville plant of the former Fabri-Form Co., a plastics thermoformer, will shut down near the end of February 2014.  Approximately 40 employees who worked at that facility received notice of the closure on Friday.  Unofficially, some of the employees have been offered jobs at the New Concord facility.
Some workers will lose their jobs in December, others in February and some will be employed as long as April.
Fabri-Form was founded in Byesville in 1943 and was located at a number of sites around the village until moving into the current Byesville plant on the west side of town.  Fabri-Form had been ranked by "Plastic News" as 28th among North American thermoformers.  In July, the company merged with the Penda Corporation of Portage, Wisconsin, ranked 17th among thermoformers. The new company, Penda Fabri-Form Corp., is headquartered in the New Concord Fabri-Form facility.
The company had asked Byesville Council at a meeting several months ago to vacate portions of alleys that crossed the company's Byesville property. One of the alleys runs through the parking lot and another actually runs through the middle of the plant. At this time, those alleys have not been closed.  According to Village Administrator Brennan Dudley, the issues with the alleyways had nothing to do with the plant closure.  The village in fact is still working with the company to close those alleys.
