Cement Factory Shows No Signs Of Bouncing Back In Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on June 5, 2012

If you were holding out hope that Buzzi Unicem would someday return to full production in Oglesby, you were dealt another setback.

The Oglesby City Council and cement maker have reached an agreement on what infrastructure around the plant belongs to the city.  Buzzi is dismantling electric service and as part of the agreement, acknowledge some lines and transformers belong to the city.

Only a handful of people still work at the plant that began major layoffs in 2008.
