2 central Pa. plants close, affecting almost 150

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania official has confirmed that two factories have abruptly closed down, leaving almost 150 workers without jobs.

Mike Flanagan, president and CEO of Clinton County Economic Partnership, told The (Lock Haven) Express (http://bit.ly/1956gdh ) that the closing was “a tough one.”

He said Fenco Automotive Products is filing for bankruptcy, and the local plants include the former Champion Parts building in Lock Haven and Fenco-related Lock Haven Distribution.

He said Fenco at one point employed more than 200 people, but the latest numbers indicate 147 employees.

Parent company Motorcar Parts of America Inc. said subsidiaries Fenwick Automotive Products Limited and Introcan (Fenco) were expected to file for bankruptcy.

Flanagan said his organization would work with CareerLink to try to help the displaced workers.
