The company filed a notice July 25 with the Tennessee Department of Labor and Worker Development under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The layoffs affect 67 employees and will start Sept. 20 and continue through December this year, according to the notice.
Employees at the facility are not represented by a collective bargaining agreement.
