Nope, just losing glass production. The site as a whole will still be operational, just the glass making part will shut.

To be fair it'll be a good thing to see. The glass "machine" is amazing, we saw it while it was making the glass.

It basically puts raw materials in one end, and a continuous sheet of glass comes out the other side, floating on a bed of molten tin (that's why it's called float glass). It's quite something to see.

It is amazing to watch :)

I also enjoyed the mineral wool manufacturers next door, spun glass it was like a huge candy floss machine!
