Cognis Headquarters in Cincinnati to close

Dozens of jobs are on the chopping block as the world's largest chemical company says they will close their North American headquarters here in Cincinnati.

As part of Cognis Corporation's agreement with new owners BASF, the headquarters located in Spring Grove Village will close down. The factory will still remain open.

Many of the jobs located at the Cincinnati headquarters could be relocated to other North American sites.

The German-based BASF bought Cognis Corp. in January.
