(MENDON) – A long time Mendon business will be shutting down operations in May 2020.
According to WWMT, a letter was sent to the United Auto Workers Local 503, saying that International Automotive Components Group will be closing their Mendon plant after the current work orders are finished next Spring. With the closing, approximately 230 people will be laid off.
IAC is a global Tier I supplier of interior systems and components with leading market shares across its product lines. Their core products consist of instrument panels and consoles; door systems and headliner and overhead systems. They supply products for more than 300 vehicle nameplates, and in 2018 their global sales were $4.1 billion.
In June 2018, IAC laid off 64 workers at the Mendon plant, and then laid off another 83 employees in November. Company officials say those lay offs were a result of a significant reduction in volumes on the General Motors K2XX program.
At that time, company officials said they had no plans to close the Mendon plant.
