WINCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - An east central Indiana auto parts manufacturer has told its more than 750 employers it will close its doors by mid-November 2016.

Indiana Marujun LLC informed all of its full- and part-time employees of the pending closure during meetings Tuesday.

A company vice president, Eric Fields, tells The (Muncie) Star Press (https://tspne.ws/1LM0S2B ) the closing process will begin next month. He says the closure is a result of a changing car manufacturing industry.

The Winchester plant has been the North America branch for Japanese manufacturer Marujun since 1999. The plant makes fuel lids, steering hanger beams, hand brakes, hood locks, fuel filler pipes, and other body parts for Honda automobiles. It supplies plants in Indiana, Ohio, Alabama, Canada and Mexico.
