FORT MADISON (AP)--Detroit Tool Metal Products says it's closing its plant in Fort Madison and consolidating operations at one central facility at its headquarters in Lebanon, Mo.

The company in a statement on Thursday says the Iowa plant would close by the end of the year in an effort to cut costs and become more competitive.

The company did not say how many employees work at its Fort Madison plant. A telephone call to a spokesman was not immediately returned.

Detroit Tool Metal Products is a provider of metal stamping and fabrication appliance, construction, heavy equipment and other products.
