MONONA, Iowa (AP) - A Clayton County plant slated for closure this year will remain open.

A Commercial Vehicle Group filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said the company’s Monona plant will not be closed, as announced last July.

The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2qiXZoQ ) that the company had planned to move the plant production to a facility in Agua Prieta, Mexico. But the May 24 SEC filing also says the plans changed because of “production challenges with new launches, elevated seasonal orders and a tight labor market in Agua Prieta.”

As of July last year the Monona plant employed nearly 150 people to produce wire harness electrical systems.
