Closing of Brackenridge's Flabeg will put 100 out of work

Date: 22 November 2011
About 100 employees will lose their jobs when major U.S. car mirror maker Flabeg closes its Brackenridge plant sometime next year, company and union officials said Friday.

As of yesterday, about 95 full-time and 20 part-time employees were drawing paychecks from the Flabeg Automotive U.S. Corp.'s Brackenridge plant at 851 Fifth Ave.

Charlie Johnson, senior vice president of Flabeg US Holdings Inc., declined to say just when the manufacturer will shut down auto mirror production. He said a rumor that the plant will close in March is "absolutely erroneous."

The closing is part of a major restructuring started by the parent corporation's European plants about two years ago.
