Century-old Coke Plant to Close

Citizens Gas & Coke Utility says it will close its Indianapolis Coke Manufacturing Division, eliminating 300 jobs. The utility says it worked for eleven months to find a buyer for the facility and at one time had 20 entities interested, but no final deals could be reached. Citizens Gas says the plant will close down over the next several months. The utility notified workers in February that it could cease plant operations. The plant has been a part of the utility for nearly 100 years.
