An automobile parts manufacturer says it will close its Oklahoma City plant next year, eliminating 165 jobs.

The Michigan-based Federal-Mogul Corp. said in a statement that it decided to shutter the plant to help realign its North American distribution network and increase business efficiencies.

The Oklahoman reports that the company says employees will be offered help to find new work.

The Oklahoma City plant operation includes about a 123,000-square-foot manufacturing plant and an 86,400-square-foot warehouse.

The Affina Group Inc., based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, owned the production until May, when the company sold part of its business to Federal-Mogul.
