JAMESTOWN – A City of Jamestown factory is slated to close later this year.

Jamestown Metal Products, 178 Blackstone Avenue, in a statement to WNYNewsNow says they notified employees Wednesday they will be closing the plant on September 4.







The statement cites “unprofitability of the division” as a reason for the closure.

“HR Director Joseph Crews will be working with all available agencies to assist employees affected,” said the statement.
