Graham Packaging to close Baltimore plant, laying off 79

Nearly 80 people will lose their jobs when York County’s Graham Packaging Co. LP shuts down a Maryland plant beginning next month.

Springettsbury Township-based Graham filed a WARN notice with Maryland’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation regarding closure of the plant at 210 Kane St., Baltimore.

Seventy-nine workers will be affected, the WARN notice said. Company officials declined comment when called about the layoffs this morning.

The Baltimore job cuts will be Graham’s second mass layoff in the region in two years.

In 2014, Graham filed a WARN notice in Pennsylvania advising the state of 55 layoffs at its Manchester Township facility in York County. No WARN notices are currently on file for the company in Pennsylvania.

Graham, which makes plastic containers, became a wholly owned subsidiary of New Zealand-based Reynolds Group Holdings Ltd. in 2011. Its products are used in the food and beverage, automotive and health care industries.

Graham, which went public in February 2010, was delisted as part of the merger.

According to its website, Graham has international locations in China, Europe and Mexico.
