6 News has learned that Bharat Forge America Incorporated, which makes steel parts for vehicles, has told their employees just before the holidays they are closing their doors for good.
The facility on Martin Luther King in Lansing is the company's only location in the United States.
An employee with Bharat Forge told 6News that management posted a sign inside the building saying the plant would be shutting down, but it didn't indicate when.
The company has not released a statement as to why the plant is closing and attempts to reach CEO Stu Mcgowan were not returned.
But this is not the first time,the company has made headlines.
Back in October of 2010, the Michigan Department of Energy Labor and Economic Growth fined the company over $130,000 for having over 40 alleged health and safety violations at that facility.
Among the violations were failure to protect employees, not having guards on equipment and lack of ventilation for welders.
70 employees were also laid off in 2010, because the company said they were losing money, but the latest 3rd quarter earnings report doesn't give any clues as to why the plant would be closing.
We also reached out to union officials at UAW local 724, who represent the 80 plus workers from Bharat Forge America, they were also unavailable for comment.
It's likely those workers will lose their jobs when this plant closes.
