Dana Holdings plans to close its 150-worker plant in Rochester Hills, Michigan, and shift production to two other factories.
The work will be shifted to Dana plants in St. Clair, Michigan, and Paris, Tennessee, next year, Dana spokesman Chuck Hartlage told Reuters.
Dana said workers at Rochester Hills could transfer to the nearby St. Clair plant or the one in Tennessee.
It will be “business as usual” until the shifting of work is completed by the end of 2013, Dana said.
“After much consideration, the company determined that consolidation of these facilities was necessary to the long-term success of our US engine cooling business,” Dana said.
Equipment from the Rochester Hills plant will start to be moved later this year and the plant will shut by the end of 2013, the company said.
