After being in Simpsonville for over 50 years, the Leggett & Platt plant will shut it doors in mid January.
Simpsonville Mayor Steve Eden received notice today that all 240 of the companies current workers will be out of a job by Jan. 18.
Last month the company announced they would lay off 86 employees, with most to lose their jobs next month.
At one time the company, which manufacturers parts for beds and chairs, was the county’s largest employer.
Eden said the closing of the company is devastating.
