Intertec Systems has announced that the company’s Bardstown plant will close by spring, another victim of the nation’s sagging automotive industry.
The closure is part of a restructuring plan being implemented by Johnson Controls, which along with INOAC created Intertec in 1996. The Bardstown plant opened in 1997.
The facility currently employs some 200 workers, who produce high-end foam and skin instrument panels for General Motors vehicles.
Company officials say the closure will take place in phases, beginning this winter. Operations will end by late spring or early summer.
