Commercial Turf Products Closing Ohio Plant
Commercial Turf Products Ltd., a maker of lawn and garden equipment, is closing its Streetsboro, Ohio plant, Crain’s Cleveland Business publication has reported.
Commercial Turf Products is a subsidiary of MTD, a manufacturer of outdoor power equipment based in Valley City, Ohio. The closure is due to excess capacity at some of MTD’s other plants and the work at Commercial Turf Products will be split among three plants in Tennessee, Mississippi and Willard, Ohio, according to the report.
The closure in Streetsboro is expected to be permanent, and the 290 employees affected will be released by the end of June, which is the end of the company's production schedule.
