In The Region:

The smell of baking bread could be a thing of the past in Cuyahoga Falls. 

Schwebel Baking Company plans to close its plant along Route 8 sometime next year.

The Youngstown-based company is upgrading its Solon facility and HR director Bruce Gluski says most of the roughly 140 employees in Cuyahoga Falls will be able to transfer there.

“Employers do make decision all the time in terms of plant upgrades and so forth and it’s regrettable that some people might have to drive a little bit further, but we’re pleased that we’re able to offer a transfer to most of the employees.”

Gluski says the union that represents the bakery workers will provide severance pay to those who decide not to transfer. 

Listener Comments:
