A Youngsville company that makes catheters and related medical devices is permanently closing its manufacturing facility June 30 and laying off more than 100 employees.
Apogee Medical told the N.C. Department of Commerce last week that the closure is due to the transfer of product production to another plant owned by Apogee's parent company, Hollister Global.
Meanwhile, the Apogee plant will be taken over by a another medical manufacturer, Robling Medical. Robling Medical will continue manufacturing some products for Apogee at the plant in Youngsville, about 25 miles north of Raleigh.
It's not clear if Robling plans to hire any of the workers that Apogee will lay off. Company president Brent Robling did not return phone calls or e-mails.
