Bryan Metals is set to close at an as-of-yet-undisclosed date, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation.

The plant, on South Main Street in Bryan, currently employs 22 workers and specializes in products sold in the automotive and electronics/electrical components markets.

The jobs will not be reassigned elsewhere, according to sources, and workers at the plant were informed of the situation earlier this month.

No changes are currently expected at Chase Brass, which has the same owner as Bryan Metals, Wieland Chase, sources said.

Bryan Metals came under ownership of Wieland Chase, which was formed in a merger between Olin Brass parent company Global Brass and Copper Holdings Inc. and 200-year old German firm Wieland-Werke AG, in July.

More than 50 years old, Bryan Metals was acquired by Olin Brass in 1988.

A call left at Bryan Metals seeking further information was not returned. A message sent to its corporate offices was also not returned.
