3 MS manufacturing plants close, affecting hundreds of jobs

NORTH MS (WLBT) - Nearly 325 Mississippians are off the job today after three manufacturing plants shut down over the weekend.

Most of those employees had no prior notice of the closures.

All of the north Mississippi plants are a division of Jancor Companies, based in Ohio.

Heartland Building Products in Booneville stopped making vinyl siding on Saturday.

Jancor officials advised some 140 employees there not to report to work until further notice.

Also shut down were Infinite Building Products in Olive Branch -- eliminating some 100 jobs as well as Outdoor Technologies Plant in Macon, which employed 84.
