LAPORTE, Ind. -- A northern Indiana metal casting factory is set to close, a move that could eliminate about 120 jobs in the coming months.

LaPorte Mayor Blair Milo says ATI Casting plans in June to start shutting the factory in the city about 25 miles west of South Bend.

Milo tells The LaPorte County Herald-Argus that local economic development officials will be meeting with the company to see whether any steps are possible to avoid the closure.

A letter from the company cites continued poor economic conditions for the closing decision.
