Goodrich Corp. said it will close its landing-gear facility in Cleveland by the end of 2012.
The Charlotte-based aerospace and defense company said it is closing the plant "due to program volume decline and the lack of appropriate new work to cost-effectively fill available capacity."
The Cleveland plant, which employs 400 people, supplies landing-gear equipment for commercial and military customers, according to Goodrich.
Goodrich in a news release said the work being performed at the plant "will be gradually transferred to other landing-gear facilities."
In November 2010, Goodrich opened a large new manufacturing center in Rzeszow, in Poland.
