Worthington Industries to close Maryland plant

December 13, 2013

Worthington Industries will close its Baltimore-area steel-processing plant next May, leading to the loss of 54 jobs.

“With the consolidation of the steel industry, many of the mills that previously supplied the Baltimore facility have closed, negatively impacting the supply chain there,” the company said in a federal regulatory disclosure this week.

Columbus-based Worthington said that its other steel plants can pick up the remaining business from the one in Maryland.
