Workers at the Cequent Performance Products factory in Goshen have been told about the closing plans, although company spokesman Alan Upchurch tells The Goshen News that a final decision isn't expected until next month.

Upchurch says the closing would be part of changes to make the company more competitive.

Goshen City Councilman Jeremy Stutsman tells WSBT-TV the city will do what it can to keep the company and that it hurts to see that work likely go to another country.

United Steel Workers official Mike O'Brien says the union expects to meet with company executives next week to discuss the closing plans.
