Kennametal to Close Arkansas Plant

A Kennametal plant in Arkansas will close at the end of the year, leaving 120 people out of work. Spokeswoman Christina Reitano says the plant is expected to close Dec. 31. Unity, Westmoreland County- based Kennametal says the 120 positions at the Bentonville plant will be eliminated in a company restructuring that moves the carbide drill and burr manufacturing to a plant in Ashboro, N.C.
