MANSFIELD, Ohio - The sale of a former General Motors plant in north-central Ohio is raising hopes that new jobs will be coming.
Representatives of a Miami-based firm that will own the former auto factory near Mansfield say they have two potential tenants that could bring 1,100 jobs combined.
General Motors Co. shut down the plant three years ago. The factory had opened in 1955.
The Mansfield News Journal reports that the new owners plan to demolish half of the plant and turn it into a modern multi-tenant site.
Terms of the sale weren't released.
