Madisonville Plastics Plant to Close, Layoff 124

Berry Plastics Corp. plans to close the former Rexam Madisonville plant and layoff its 124 employees by Jan. 31. Plant employee Randy Flahardy wasn’t surprised by the announcement. He noticed production has been slow since the company took over Rexam on Sept. 1. “It was almost like they made the decision to shut us down when they bought us,” Flahardy said.
