BROCKWAY — A glass container moulding plant in northwestern Pennsylvania is closing, idling its remaining 35 workers.

Brockway Mould has been owned since 1994 by Ross Mould, of Washington, which has plants in other states, South Africa, Colombia and Hungary. Ross Mould announced in July that it would close the plant 85 miles northeast of Pittsburgh because of outsourcing and the inability to compete with Chinese moulds being dumped into the market at lower prices.

The plant had been in Jefferson County for about 40 years.

The plant is scheduled to close Saturday.
