SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - About 140 jobs will be lost with the closing of a copper cable plant in the western Nebraska city of Sidney.

CommScope, which is based in Hickory, North Carolina, says it will close the plant in phases and move some of the work to a CommScope facility in Claremont, North Carolina.

CommScope gained the Sidney plant in August as part of its recent acquisition of the Broadband Network Solutions business from TE Connectivity.

A CommScope news release says the Sidney plant is being closed because of underutilization and available production capacity elsewhere.
