David City Plant To Close, Over 180 Jobs To Be Lost
DAVID CITY - Over 180 people will soon be out of work due to the closing of a Butler County manufacturer in the near future.
Fargo Assembly stated in a July letter to the Nebraska Department of Labor that it would be closing its doors on or before November 29th. The letter says that 186 full-time employees and three part-time employees will be losing their jobs once the plant closes.
Positions that are being eliminated include material handlers, shipping clerks, molders, assembly operators, cutters, quality control technicians, inventory clerks, and a human resource assistant.
Fargo Assembly is based out of Fargo, North Dakota, and has had a plant in David City for 38 years. The company was recently bought out by Electrical Components International, and four other plants around the country have closed since the purchase.
The letter to the NDOL states that employees were notified of the plant's closure on July 15th and 16th, and while termination dates will vary, all employees will receive at least a 60 days' notice before being laid off.
