The article focuses on the plan of Cabot to close its U.S. carbon black plant in Waverley, West Virginia because of changes in the global tire manufacturing industry. The U.S.-based specialty chemicals and materials firm said that it would close the plant, which has 48 employees, in March 2008, with customer shipments continuing until mid-2008. The U.S. tire industry has seen dramatic output reductions in the past 18 months, along with expansions in Asia and South America.
