SAPULPA, OK -- A Green Country business falls victim to the economy in crisis.

Pipe maker Paragon Industries says it will lay off 105 employees from its plants in Sapulpa and Muskogee.

Company officials say cheap steel pipe imported from China make it difficult to compete.

Paragon Industries makes steel pipes for oil and construction companies.

Officials say 90 of the 105 employees will be from production, and 15 will be support staff members.

Those layoffs will begin next month.
