Federal-Mogul to close Avilla factory; 95 jobs lost

Federal-Mogul Corp. is closing its Avilla factory in October, cutting 95 jobs, company officials said this week in a letter to state officials.

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act requires companies planning mass firings or layoffs to notify state and local officials at least 60 days before the effective date. The WARN letter was dated Tuesday.

Federal-Mogul officials cited the decision as a “response to changing market dynamics” and a desire to use the company’s lighting operations more efficiently.
