HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Unilever says it will close its Good Humor-Breyers ice cream plant in Hagerstown in August 2013.

Washington County’s economic development director said Monday that the shutdown affects 440 workers.

Tim Troxell tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown that the Dutch company revealed its plans in a filing with the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation on Sept. 2.

He says layoffs will start this fall. Troxell says the company hasn’t offered a timetable for laying off workers over the next two years.

The company first announced its intention to close the plant in June 2009.
