Loudon exhaust maker closing next month, 150 jobs affected

LOUDON, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Maremont, an exhaust manufacturing and distribution facility in Loudon, will be shutting down next month. The company's 150 employees were notified Friday morning, according to IMCO Vice-President & GM Jim Kosar.

He said the decision to close came after the company lost its largest customer.

Kosar added that some of the company's assets will be sold and they already have a buyer. He would not identify the buyer nor would he say if the owner would be retaining any employees.

The company's employees were given 30 days notice, in compliance with the Warren Act. Any severance is yet to be determined.
