Findlay Industries has announced that they will close the doors to its Findlay facilities this July.

Over 100 employees will be effected by the closure.

The company, which makes interior parts for the automotive and trucking industries, will permanently close its Molded Products Division as well as its Plant One facility on July 18.

The manufacturer blames the current economy along with its relationship with Navistar and prospective buyers for the shutdowns. Company officials say they will pursue any opportunities to keep the Findlay facilities running under new ownership, but cannot guarantee any success.

Of the 148 employees current working at the Findlay facilities, 35 are located at the corporate facility.
