TI to pull plug on city operations

1998 Texas Instruments announced Thursday that it will close its Lubbock plant by year's end and fold its operations into sister facilities in Dallas and Houston.

The decision will result in the loss of 680 full-time jobs at the North University Avenue location and an additional 12 jobs involving Air Liquide America, an in-house company providing industrial gases at the plant.

TI officials said the Dallas -based company would begin phase-down operations sometime in August.

Lubbock Mayor Windy Sitton, who was informed about the plant closing Wednesday by TI chairman Tom Engibous, said she was disheartened by the decision.
