SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- A division of Tyco International Inc. says it is closing a plant in western Puerto Rico and expects to lay off 600 workers.
Tyco Safety Products says the plant in Aguadilla is closing because of high manufacturing costs. The company's statement Tuesday said the plant is expected to shut down in phases over the next year.
The plant manufactures products such as fire detection and anti-theft systems and is part of New Jersey-based Tyco International.
