Henry Wurst Inc. Closing NC Facility
KANSAS CITY, MO—Henry Wurst Inc. will be closing its Apex, NC, facility, according to Triangle Business Journal. The move will cost 55 workers their jobs. Wurst anticipates ceasing most operations by Dec. 16. The company will then spend the next 60 days transitioning accounts to its Kansas City headquarters until February of 2012.
