Pipe Plant Closing Costs 250 Jobs

  • Photo
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - The planned closing of a pipe plant in Council Bluffs will cost an estimated 250 people their jobs.

City Councilwoman Lynne Branigan told The Daily Nonpareil on Monday that the council and Mayor Matt Walsh received notification from U.S. Pipe Holdings in Hoover, Ala., that the Griffin Pipe Products plant would be closing in early May. U.S. Pipe Holdings is a subsidiary U.S. Pipe and Foundry, Birmingham, Ala.

U.S. Pipe acquired a majority interest in Griffin Pipe earlier this year.

Branigan says Walsh will be contacting company officials.

A U.S. Pipe spokeswoman didn't immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.
