Omnova Solutions to Shut Down Manufacturing Friday

COLUMBUS, Miss.  (WCBI) — Manufacturing at Omnova Solutions in Columbus ends Friday.

Sandi Noah, the Vice President of Communications for Omnova, says the Columbus location will be used as a distribution center.

The move is no shock, after officials announced the conversion in December of 2011. Right now, the plant employs 90 employees.

For 50 of those employees, Friday is the final shift.

The remaining employees will work in distribution, with products shipped to the Columbus plant from other Omnova centers in the U.S. and Asia.
