MGA buys Times Chatsworth plant

The San Fernando Valley Business Journal is reporting that MGA Entertainment, the Van Nuys-based maker of Bratz dolls, is buying the Los Angeles Times' Chatsworth facility. MGA expects to use the location as its new corporate headquarters. No word on purchase price. You might remember that the Times announced the closing of its Chatsworth plant in late 2005. It resulted in the loss of 110 jobs and was part of the paper's effort to consolidate production facilities.
