Commercial publishing company Henry Wurst announced today it will be closing its Apex site and laying off about 55 employees in December due to market conditions.
The company is moving its production facility to its home-office in Kansas City, MO.
"It was a very difficult decision to close this facility and certainly not a reflection on the excellent employees we have here," said President Mark Hanf, of Henry Wurst, in a statement.
The Apex plant was an overflow facility for the Kansas City office. Market conditions have made competing in this area no longer viable," Hanf said.
