A major manufacturer in the City of Olean is closing its doors.
Officials with Daltile announced Thursday afternoon that the company is ending operations at its plant on South Clark Street. 174 people work at the facility.
The mosaic tile maker has been studying the long-term viability of the Olean plant and one in Gettysburg, PA in recent months.
"Unfortunately, the company felt that it was unable to make the necessary investments in the Olean facility to keep it operational," said Assemblyman Joseph Giglio.
