Schneider Electric, a global energy management and automation company with a U.S. headquarters in Boston, said it will be closing a production facility in Leesport and eliminating 231 jobs.
The plant will be closed by the end of June.
In a statement, the company said, “These changes are in response to Schneider Electric realigning the product portfolio to other sites in order to better meet customer needs.”
Production that was conducted at the Leesport plant will be moved to facilities in Seneca, South Carolina.
The company said it plans to sell the Leesport facility after production is moved.
Schneider Electric, which does business in more than 100 countries, had $29 billion in revenue in 2018.
