KENT, Ohio - H&M Rubber Company in Kent is closing, leaving its 84 employees out of work, according to a notice filed online Friday with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The paperwork stated workers will be laid off in two phases. The first round of layoffs, impacting 49 workers, is expected in late July. The balance of the workforce will be let go in late January 2013.
"...I regret to inform you that H&M Rubber Company will terminate employment of almost all employees in two phases at its facility located at 4200 Mogadore Rd., in Kent," wrote Gary Harvey, managing director for H&M Rubber in the filed paperwork.
The reason for the closure is so H&M Rubber can transfer to its parent company King Systems in Noblesville, Indiana.
King Systems manufactures and distributes airway management, anesthesia and respiratory medical devices, equipment, products and supplies.
