Saint-Gobain closes plant in Sanborn

Buffalo Bizjournals reported that sixteen employees were put out of jobs when manufacturing ceased in the recent shutdown of Saint-Gobain Ceramics' microelectronics plant in Niagara County.

The 40,000-square-foot facility at 2050 Cory Road, Sanborn, produced aluminum nitride substrates, which are used primarily in the semiconductor market.
