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.

 In this Oct. 24, 2014 photo from the U.S. Geological Survey, the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano that began June 27 is seen as it crossed Apa?a Street near Cemetery Road near the town of Pahoa on the Big Island of Hawaii.  Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near the active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across the country road and edged closer to homes. The USGS says the flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 meters) wide and moving northeast at about 10 yards (nine meters) per hour. It's currently about six-tenths of a mile (one kilometer) from Pahoa Village Road, the town's main street. (AP Photo/U.S. Geological Survey)
