SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A Spartanburg County plant that makes exhaust systems for BMW will close by the end of the year, leaving 150 workers without a job.

Officials at Faurecia say they are restructuring their operations. The French company will keep its plant at Fountain Inn open.

The plants make exhaust systems for BMW and Volkswagen plants across North America. The Spartanburg County plant opened in 2010.

The company says it will work with state and local officials to help the employees find other jobs.
