North Iowa plant closing down

CUMMINS CLOSING VO 6

A north Iowa facility is closing down.

Cummins Filtration in Lake Mills announced they’ll be closed by the end of 2014.

The decision will affect about 80 employees.

The company says the shutdown is to ensure they can remain competitive in an industry that has become increasingly price sensitive.

In 2009 the company announced they would be transferring assembly operations to a facility in Mexico.
