Americus-  An Americus auto parts plant will close by the end of January.  Just a week ago Collins and Aikman announced lay-off notices would go out for a majority of its 350 employees, now they plan to close the Americus plant by January 31st.

Equipment was removed from the plant two weeks ago when the company announced plans to sell 14 of its 45 plants. The Georgia Department of Labor is prepared to assist workers in finding new employment and with unemployment compensation.

The plant closing is a major setback for Americus and surrounding Sumter County.
