Posted by Trina Edwards - email

MAINEVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County factory is closing, leaving hundreds of people without a job.

Sumco Phoenix Corp in Maineville is expected to close by this time next year. There are 360 workers at the facility, which produces polished silicon wafers.

Production will now be shifted to other Sumco plants in the U.S. and overseas. County administrator Dave Gully says layoffs will likely begin in September.
