Glass Plant Cutting Jobs

Anchor Glass is planning to lay off about 40 workers at its plant in Warner Robins, affecting about 10 percent of the plant's workforce.

The Telegraph reports that manager Jerry Mills said the plant will idle one of its glass-making machines "to better align its manufacturing capacity with its customers' needs."

The company said it expects the machine to remain shut down all of next year.

Anchor Glass employs 443 people in Warner Robins, one of nine manufacturing facilities for the Tampa-based company. It employs about 2,900 people.
