Florence plant closing; 200 jobs lost
FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – ABCO announced it will close its facility in Florence by summer of 2015 resulting in the loss of as many as 200 jobs. The parent company is izzy+.
The current production at the Florence plant will be shifted to facilities in Middlebury, Indiana and Spring Lake, Michigan.
“We regret the impact this decision has on the people of the Florence facility, because they have been an important and well-performing part of our izzy+ family. We will be doing everything possible to help them transition to other employment,” said izzy+ President and CEO Kevin Kuske.
Kuske said izzy+ plans to sell the Florence plant when the consolidation is complete. The company expects to add a yet-to-be-determined number of manufacturing and support positions at other izzy+ facilities.
