McCain Foods Plant Closure to Cost 120 Jobs
Fort Atkinson – McCain Foods is closing its plant in Fort Atkinson, and about 120 people will soon lose their jobs.
McCain Foods president Frank Finn says the decision to close the plant is due to the overall business climate. Food products made in Fort Atkinson will be manufactured in other McCain facilities, including its plant in Rice Lake.
City manager Matt Trebatoski tells the Daily Union that the layoffs will begin in June with the full closure of the plant by the end of the year.
