Equipment maker Joy Global has confirmed it will close its Franklin, Pennsylvania, manufacturing plant and lay off its workforce by July 1. Company spokeswoman Caley Clinton said the facility, known as Plant 1, mainly makes drums and performs the fabrication and machining of smaller components. That work, she said, will be transitioned to other Joy Global locations and alliance partners — some immediately, with the remainder moving over the coming months.
