One of Buda’s largest manufacturing employers is shutting its doors and outsourcing 120 jobs to Mexico, company officials announced Wednesday.
Danfoss Chatleff LLC, which builds cooling and heating components, will close its Goforth Road plant by the end of 2010.
“This was a necessary decision,” said Søren Eskildsen, Danfoss Automatic Controls’ senior vice president. “In order to improve our competitive position, and ensure a long-term profitable business, we have to consolidate distributer production into our Mexico operation.”
The 35,000 square foot Buda plant was constructed in 1986 by the owners of Chatleff Controls. In 2007, the Danish company Danfoss bought out the operation.Email | Print
