New Hampton Plant Closing

NEW HAMPTON, IA (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- SC Johnson announced Thursday that it plans to close the company's New Hampton facility in July.  The closing means the elimination of 57 jobs at the Chickasaw County plant.
   In a statement, the company said since the Great Recession, the specialty candle business has not recovered.
   "We chose to provide a nearly six-month notice as the factory will close July 1st." Said Kelly Semrau, Senior Vice President of SC Johnson.
   The company says it will donate $20,000 to the New Hampton Great Plays Daycare Center and $10,000 to the New Hampton United Fund.  SC Johnson plans to sell the plant and hopes a new employer will find another use for it.
