The Hubbard location is one of ten facilities BYWAY operates. The Hubbard plant makes metal paint cans in quart and gallon sizes, according to the company’s website.

The company said in the WARN notice that the employees would not have bumping rights that would allow them to transfer into positions held by workers with less seniority at other facilities.
