2 Indiana factories set to closeDecember 8, 2020
By The Associated Press
FORT WAYNE — Two northeastern Indiana factories are slated to close in the coming months, eliminating more than 130 jobs.
Defense and aerospace supplier DCX-CHOL Enterprises has notified state officials that it expects to permanently close its Fort Wayne production site at the end of January.
The shutdown will cost 52 jobs, the Los Angeles-based company said in a notice to the state Department of Workforce Development.
The other planned closing involves the Vibracoustic USA factory in the town of Ligonier, about 30 miles northwest of Fort Wayne.
The auto parts supplier is a subsidiary of a German company and plans to cut 84 jobs with the closure. Most of those layoffs are scheduled by the end of March, with complete closure by June 30.
