Genova Products, one of the original industries in the Humboldt Industrial Park in Hazle Township, is slated to close by the end of the year.

Sixty people will be left without jobs.

The exact closing date of the plant, which manufactures plastics, vinyl pipe and rain gutters, is indefinite, said Andrew Kokiko, the representative for Local 737T, International Chemical Workers Union, United Food and Commercial Workers Union.

“We signed a closing agreement with them on Friday, July 20,” Kokiko said. “We don’t know (the closing date). Our contract is good until Nov. 8. They said it will depend on sales.”

Kokiko said the plant was established in 1975 and at its height in the mid-1990s employed as many as 240 people.
