Nypro closing Dothan plant, more than 100 jobs will be lost

By  | 

Dothan, AL (WTVY)- Nypro, a Dothan plastics and molding manufacturer, will close the end of this year according to multiple sources who said they are unable speak publicly until a formal announcement is made. They projected about 100 jobs will be lost plus some 50 temporary positions.

Nypro could not be reached for comment Friday night and the reason for the planned closure isn’t known.

The Linkedin page of Dothan General Manager Kevin Bokros claims revenues for the Dothan plant grew at 38% and 50% respectively in 2015.

The company, however, had sold in 2013 to Jabil Circuit for $665-million. Then CEO Timothy L. Main, indicated there would be restructuring and hinted at cuts when he discussed the transaction with media.

After Sony closed in 2010 the plant was demolished but Nypro’s facility on the property adjacent to the Chapelwood subdivision remained intact and several Sony workers who lost jobs were hired by Nypro.

It’s not known when a formal announcement of the plant’s plan to close will be made.
