HICKSVILLE By the beginning of April, Dietrich Industries in Hicksville may close its doors for good. Were in the process of moving the lines out of there. By the end of February all the lines would have moved, said Cathy Lyttle, vice president of corporate communications at Columbus-based Worthington Industries, of which Dietrich is a division. Its gotten down to a pretty small staff, she said. We are, at this point, down to 10 employees who are in the process of boxing things up and this and that... primarily the smaller machinery and parts. Most of the other stuff has been transported to other locations. By the end of this month, we will be down to five employees.
