An iconic Indiana employer is shutting down. Indiana Limestone Co. has been in business for more than 100 years and has provided stone for high-profile structures including the Empire State Building and the Pentagon. In a notice to the state, the Oolitic-based company says the move will affect nearly 170 workers. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection a week ago.

ILC has operations in Bloomington and the Lawrence County city and is owned by Ohio-based Resilience Capital Partners.
The same company acquired Victor Oolitic Stone Co. in 2009 after it went bankrupt. Resilience Capital later merged the Indiana businesses, which now do business as Indiana Limestone Co.
