MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Viasystems Milwaukee says it will close its Oak Creek manufacturing and distribution plant next year, resulting in the loss of 238 jobs.
Viasystems told the state Thursday it will close the plant in phases. It says the first and largest shut down will take place Jan. 19, and the final one will be done by the end of May.
According to its Web site, Viasystems is a worldwide provider of circuit boards and other electronic equipment.
The Department of Workforce Development says it will work with the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board and the Hire Center to help affected employees and let them know what services are available.
