Furniture plant closing in northwest Iowa

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (AP) — The closing of a furniture plant will cost the jobs of more than 110 people in northwest Iowa.

Nemschoff Chairs has announced that it will close its plant in Sioux Center. The Sheboygan, Wis.-based company makes furniture for use in health care facilities.

A spokesman said 19 people already had been laid off. Ninety-two more will lose their jobs, too. The closing is expected to be finished on Sept. 15.

The company blamed the closure on the economy, uncertainty caused by the federal health care changes and new federal regulations. .
