Helmet fabricator to leave artist enclave

Residents cited fumes from helmet-maker

A helmet-making company has agreed to move its operation from Midway Studios to another location in Boston, a decision that drew applause Wednesday night at a meeting with dozens of the artists who live and work in the Fort Point building.

Ops-Core will have 45 days to do assembly work, but no painting, in its space at 15 Channel Center, with city inspectors promising to keep a close watch. City officials said they expect a deal to be finalized shortly between Ops-Core and the owners of the new property that the company plans to rent.
