Ky. plastics manufacturing plant slated to close

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls plans to close a central Kentucky plastics manufacturing plant early next year, potentially putting nearly 400 employees out of work.

A mass layoff notice filed with the Kentucky Office of Employment & Training on Friday says up to 392 workers could be cut in February when the facility in Louisville closes. The plant produces injection-molded interior components for vehicles.

Company spokeswoman Debra Lacey says the plant employs 440 workers, and an unspecified number would be transferred to other plants within the company.

She said the decision to close the plant was based on "excess capacity in our interiors business."
