The closure will result in the loss of a majority of the jobs at the Hutchins facility. The AAF Hutchins plant, which produces panel and pleated filters, currently has 100 hourly and salaried employees.
 
AAF says that this restructuring will allow the company to more effectively serve its entire customer base in North America with a more responsive manufacturing and distribution footprint.
 
“AAF will work with our customers in the coming weeks to provide a seamless transition of supply,” said Greg Parlee, AAF’s vice president of sales for air filter products Americas.
