Indiana ambulance plant with 165 workers closing

ELKHART (AP) — The new owner of a northern Indiana factory that builds ambulances has decided to shut it down, eliminating 165 jobs.

SJC Industries has notified the state that it will start terminating employees from the Elkhart factory in July as it completes production work there.

The decision to close the Elkhart factory comes two weeks after Allied Specialty Vehicles bought SJC Industries. The subsidiary of a New York-based private equity firm also bought a Monoco RV factory with 520 workers in nearby Wakarusa this month that it also plans to close this summer.

Allied executive Hans Heinsen tells the South Bend Tribune that production from the Elkhart ambulance plant will be moved to a Florida factory in the coming months.
