OGLEBAY NORTON CO. 10/13/07
Oglebay Norton Co. sold its iconic freighters on the Great Lakes and pared its business to limestone, lime and industrial sands after exiting bankruptcy in 2005. Its limestone quarries are concentrated in Michigan, such as this operation near Rogers City on the northern end of the state’s Lower Peninsula. Oglebay said Friday that a Belgian lime company wants to buy it for $519 million.
