Berea

By wmadministrator

Panasonic Motor Co. is closing its plant in Berea as the company moves more of its production to Asia. The Berea plant, which opened in 1996, manufactures small electric motors for vacuum cleaners, antilock brakes and spas. At its peak the plant employed some 300 people but now has a workforce of 51. The plant will cease operations at the end of September. Panasonic also has a facility in Danville, but that plant is not being affected.

DC USA,
a plastic molding operation, has opened a new facility in Berea. The company’s clients include PPG in Berea and Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Georgetown. The company currently employs approximately 15 people, but hopes to expand its staff to between 50 and 100 within the next couple of years.
