FALLS CITY, Neb. (AP) — A Pennsylvania lawn and garden tool company is closing its manufacturing plant in southeast Nebraska's Falls City.

Ames True Temper, a subsidiary of New York-based holding company Griffon Corp., said Wednesday it will close the Falls City plant and consolidate operations at its plant in Camp Hill, Pa.

Ames True Temper says the Falls City plant employs about 35 people. The process of closing the plant will begin shortly, and the plant will be completely closed by December.

The company says employees will be offered severance based on years of service.
