GE says it will close eastern Illinois lamp plant in 2017

General Electric Lighting says its plant in Mattoon in eastern Illinois will close in August 2017.
The company said this summer that it planned to close the plant next year unless its employees could come up with an acceptable alternative for the facility. According to WAND-TV in Decatur, the company said in a statement Wednesday that the drop in demand for traditional lighting means the plant is now operating at 40 percent of its capacity.
