The End is Near for the LAT Orange County Facility

The Los Angeles Times Production Facility in Costa Mesa, know as the Orange County Plant, was scheduled to be shuttered on March 15th, 2010, but was given a reprieve for a few months. The plant is now rumored to produce it’s last edition of the Los Angeles Times on May 15th, 2010, if the conversion of the presses at the Times downtown plant is completed by next month.

Masthead, the company installing the new color couples, has brought in additional workers and they’re working at a frantic pace seven days per week to complete the project by mid May.

If anyone plans to mark this sad day at the Los Angeles Times Orange County Plant let us know?

its a sad day, i have lots of good memories from this plant, as well as made lots of good friends over the years, i left in 05, my thought and prayers go out to all my pressman brothers who recently lost their jobs of 20 or 30 plus years i had a good 23 years with the company and yes it is one for the history books.
