Sun Will Shutter Staten Island Plant
Sun Chemical is closing a pigments facility in Staten Island, N.Y., that employs 94 workers. "Due to intense competition from low-cost producers, particularly those in China, this plant can no longer operate competitively," the firm says. Sun says the plant, built in 1907 by G. Siegle Corp., is the oldest pigment factory in North America. Sun acquired it in 1957.
