DENVER (AP) - The Coleman Co. plans to close its headquarters in Jefferson County and eliminate dozens of jobs.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/2isIx1Q ) a notice filed with the state Department of Labor and Employment says the outdoor recreational equipment manufacturer will shut down the facility and lay off 54 people by the end of February.

Coleman’s parent company, Newell Brands, says it will fold management of the Coleman product line into its Chicago-based beverage-ware businesses.

Coleman built its $4.5 million headquarters near Golden in 1996 before moving its executive team to Kansas the following year. The company returned to its Colorado facility 15 years later, citing better business opportunities.

Jefferson County had helped lure the company back with cash and tax incentives.



Coleman’s outdoor products include cook stoves, insulated coolers and tents.
