RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — Coca-Cola Co. plans to close a distribution and sales center in eastern Indiana this summer, a move that will cost the jobs of 40 workers.
A company spokesman says the Richmond facility will be consolidated with five other Coke plants, including three in Indiana. Spokesman Roy Potts tells the Palladium-Item that the company bought the facility last year from local owners and decided to streamline operations in the area.
The Richmond facility is expected to close July 30.
Potts says the delivery, warehouse and office workers and sales people at the Richmond plant will be able to apply for other jobs in the Coca-Cola company.
