Fort Wayne Oven Plant to Close in Consolidation

Manitowoc Foodservice announced Friday that it would close a plant in Fort Wayne by April 30 as part of consolidating operations in Cleveland, where it is expanded manufacturing.

The number of employees affected was not disclosed.

In December 2009, about 185 to 190 employees were expected to continue working at the local plant after the sale of the company's Smallware Division.

Manitowoc says it will invest in a satellite office in the Fort Wayne area for customer service and technical support teams of its Lincoln brand ovens.
