BASF to close Decatur, Ala., plant

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - BASF Corp., is closing its plant in Decatur
which will idle about 115 workers.

The German-based chemical manufacturer said Tuesday layoffs will
start March 31. Employees were informed about the closing in
September.

The facility is being closed because BASF has sold its coil and
coating business to PPG Industries. The materials are used to coat
roofs, siding and other products.

PPG said work at the Decatur plant will be moved to a facility
in Pennsylvania.
