Worthington (WOR -2.5%) discloses that its Baltimore steel facility will close by the end of its 2014 fiscal year ending May 31, concluding it can more efficiently service its Mid-Atlantic customers from other company facilities and partners.

With the consolidation of the steel industry, many of the mills that previously supplied the Baltimore plant have closed, negatively impacting the supply chain there, WOR says.
