SPARTA, Mich. (WOOD) — A factory in Sparta is closing its doors this summer.
Tenneco will be closing its factory in Sparta, at 200 S Maple St., this July, it said in a letter filed with the state April 30.
At least 70 employees are scheduled to be laid off on July 2, or sometime between July 2 and July 15, the letter said.
The company will be moving operations done at the Sparta location to other Tenneco sites.
*Correction: A previous version of this article stated the letter was sent to an employee. It was actually a WARN letter filed with the state. Such notifications are required under the law in the event of mass layoffs or firings.
