Hav-A-Tampa cigar plant closing, eliminating nearly 500 jobs

The parent of the Hav-A-Tampa is closing its Tampa cigar production plant, idling nearly 500 employees.

Altadis U.S.A., Inc., which owns the longtime cigar-making operation, plans to cut a total of 492 jobs at its facility at 3901 Riga Blvd by Aug. 24, according to a mass layoff WARN notice filed Tuesday with the state.

A company spokesman was not immediately available for comment.
