DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — An upholstered and wood furniture company says it will close a Dubuque manufacturing facility that employs 250 people at the end of 2017.

President and CEO Karel Czanderna says the facility is inefficient and costly to maintain.

The Telegraph Herald (http://bit.ly/2dmbpta ) reports that Flexsteel Industries officials hope to replace the aging facility with a new one in Dubuque, but other locations are being considered.

Dubuque City Manager Mike Van Milligen says discussions with company officials about potential new locations in the city are underway.
