CANNELTON – A longtime Cannelton employer will close its doors in the next year, resulting in the loss of about 40 jobs. It will also bring an end to a decades-old tradition of manufacturing high-quality safes in the city.
The Master Lock Co. announced this week that it will close its Sentry Safe manufacturing facilities in Cannelton and in Rochester, N.Y. The Cannelton plant was owned for decades by Schwab Corp. and is still known by that name to many in the local community.
