Plant closing its doors, leaving around 100 people without a job

It's a huge setback for dozens of people.

Workers at one factory have learned they're losing their jobs in just a few months.

Jackson Plastics in Nicholasville is shutting down, effective April 30.

The plant makes parts for Toyota vehicles. Around 100 people work there.

27 NEWSFIRST spoke with several workers at the plant, who say Jackson Plastics CEO Henry Jackson informed them of the decision to close the plant yesterday.

We attempted to reach Jackson by phone, but he did not return our calls.

We did speak with the owner of the building Jackson Plastics is in, who tells us the closing will have far-reaching implications across Nicholasville.

Mayor Russ Meyer says he's sorry to see the plant go, since it's been in the community for years.

He says he wants to help those who are losing their jobs at the plant.
