NAPPANEE — A company is planning to shut down a northern Indiana factory where about 160 people have been overhauling Greyhound buses.

An executive of ABC Companies says many of those workers at the factory in the Elkhart County town of Nappanee will have the chance for jobs at a nearby plant where it will be building double-decker buses.

Company vice president Jon Savitz tells the South Bend Tribune that it will be producing 75 to 100 double-decker buses a year for a Scottish company.

ABC Companies says it expects to close the bus refurbishing factory by Sept. 15.
