A soft drink company in Elizabethtown is closing its plant at the end of the year.
The Toronto based, Cott Corporation is also closing another plant in Pennsylvania.
Elizabethtown plant manager Dan Hassan says the company is shutting down the two plants due to a company audit showing it had excess processing capacity.
The jobs and workload will move to other factories in Florida and Missouri.
The Elizabethtown plant employed more than 100 people.
All of the employees were given options such as severance packages or other job opportunities.
