Sorg Inc., one of the nation's largest financial printing companies, said Thursday that it is closing its Kellow-Brown printing plant in Carson and is laying off nearly 140 people. The firm, which filed for bankruptcy court protection on Aug. 8, also reported a $10.4-million loss for the fiscal year ended May 31. Sorg attributed the loss to a decline in demand for financial printing after the October, 1987, stock market crash and to increased competition in the industry. Sorg lost $3.

Calling attention to the loss of thousands of jobs in the South Bay, business leaders and local elected officials held a rally Thursday at a former Carson mattress factory whose operations were recently moved to Mexico and Riverside County. Dozens of unemployed workers attended the rally, which organizers hoped would highlight what they consider key reasons why businesses are leaving Southern California--oppressive environmental regulation and a costly workers' compensation system.

Kellow-Brown Co. had been around Southern California for more than 90 years. But the Carson printing firm, acquired two years ago by printing giant Sorg Inc., closed permanently last month and laid off all of its 140 employees. Sorg blamed the closure on the decline in demand for financial printing since the 1987 stock market crash and on increased competition.
