WEST CHESTER TOWNSHIP, Ohio — The closing of a company’s Butler County plant will mean the loss of 67 jobs, the Journal-News reports.

Iconex, which manufactures and markets receipt, labeling, and imaging solutions to businesses worldwide at its West Chester Township facility, issued a notice of the plant’s closure Thursday.

While the exact date of the closure of the 9220 Glades Drive facility has not been set, it is anticipated to be sometime on or before April 28, and all positions aside from two off-site sales positions will be eliminated, according to the WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) notice.

Approximately 67 individuals will be affected by the plant closing, with 43 positions eliminated as of March 3, then another 22 on or around March 29. The remaining eliminations will occur gradually during the month of April until the plant is completely closed.

The majority of the positions to be eliminated are machine operators, packers and pickers, according to the WARN notice. The plant is a non-union facility.

Iconex, which was formerly a part of NCR, has locations in Georgia, Missouri, Virginia, Tennessee and Nevada, as well as Mexico, England and France.
