Turkington plant acquired by Illinois manufacturer

An Illinois-based manufacturer has acquired Turkington USA, the industrial oven-maker located in Clayton that in February announced plans to shut down.

Middleby Corp., which makes foodservice equipment, purchased the assets of Turkington to bolster the food processing and baking capabilities of its equipment, a release stated.

Turkington announced in February it would close its Clayton plant and lay off 101 workers in the process. The company detailed the layoffs in a notice filed with the N.C. Department of Commerce, saying a temporary receiver had been appointed to wind down or sell the business.

Turkington USA is a subsidiary of United Kingdom based Turkington Industries. In 2009, Turkington relocated its manufacturing plant to Clayton from Goldsboro, where it had operated for 27 years.

The company detailed the layoffs in a notice filed Monday with the N.C. Department of Commerce. The notice said a temporary receiver has been appointed to wind down or sell the business.

Turkington officials could not be reached for comment Thursday. The announcement marks a quick fall for the business, which is the U.S. subsidiary of United Kingdom-based Turkington Industries.
