?    Officials in the New York City office of Hyosung (America) Inc. announced Thursday, October 30, that its facility in Scottsburg, known as American Steel Cord, will close its doors as of December 31.
    Operations are discontinuing at the plant on the west side of Scottsburg due to “...economic conditions and an increasingly competitive industry,” according to the news release. The closure will affect 154 people now employed at American Steel Cord (ASC).
    “The extremely challenging industry, which has been impacted due to reduced demand, high utility costs and other economic factors, has forced this decision,” according to a company official.
    The site, the release said, has been operated at a loss for the past two years. Hyosung officials had sought “...every opportunity to turn the performance around; however, it became very evident we had no option but to make this difficult decision. We regret the impact this difficult decision will have on the Scottsburg workforce, along with their families and the community.”
