DECATUR -

Pennsylvania-based Silberline Manufacturing Co. is detailing plans to close its facility in Adams County. In a notice to the state, the company says the closure will result in the layoffs of 50 employees. 

Silberline Manufacturing is a supplier of special effect and performance pigments used to enhance the visual appeal of coatings, paints, inks, plastics and textiles, according to its website. The company says the closure of the Decatur facility is part of its consolidation and restructuring strategy.

"The Company will permanently transfer all work from the Facility to other locations as part of its ongoing effort to shrink its geographic footprint and consolidate operations into a smaller number of locations," the company said. "This relocation of work will result in the closure of the entire Facility and the permanent layoff of the Facility employees."

Some of the affected employees are represented by a union and have bumping rights. The layoffs are expected to begin January 28 and continue in phases by July. Silberline Manufacturing did not state whether it was offering any sort of assistance to the affected employees.
