Though aluminum maker Ormet Corporation closed the doors of its Hannibal, Ohio plant in 2013, the company left a lasting mark on the small town. Once the fourth-largest aluminum producer in the U.S., taking its proud place behind giants like Alcoa, Ormet owned “dozens of football field-sized buildings”, according to the Wall Street Journal, but closed after disputes between power providers and state regulators. At closing about 1,000 employees worked there. In years past, the number was much higher.
