An area employer closes its doors, soon. Officials say Bryan Metals on South Main Street is set to shut down sometime in the near future. The plant employs 22 workers and specializes in products sold in the automotive and electronic components markets. The jobs will not be reassigned elsewhere. Workers at the plant were informed of the situation earlier this month. Bryan Metals was purchased by Wieland Chase, which was formed in a merger between Olin Brass’ parent company, Global Brass and Copper Holdings Inc. and the German firm, Wieland-Werke AG, in July. More than 50 years old, it looks like Bryan Metals didn’t survive the merger. There are no changes at Olin Brass.
