Oglesby Plant Not Opening Anytime Soon

Posted by wlpo on September 21, 2009

During a September 2nd meeting with the CEO of the Midwest branch for Buzzi Unicem, Oglesby Mayor Tony Torres says he was told that the cement plant wouldn’t open up thru 2010. The plant closed late last year after Buzzi officials said the demand for cement was down. Around 80 workers were laid off.

The original point of the meeting between Torres and company management was to begin talks about renewing their electrical contract. Nothing was decided on that issue.
