A company that has spent nearly a century in downtown Wausau is closed for good Saturday night.
The Hammerblow Corporation had been operating for 80 years in Wausau until the work done there was moved to the company's plants in Mosinee and Mexico.
Most of the 120 employees who worked there have been offered jobs at their Mosinee plant.
However, a former employee of Hammerblow says the jobs in Mosinee pay less than they did in Wausau and are not union.
