Altec LLC to Close Indiana Location

Altec LLC, Fort Wayne, Ind., will shut down operations in the fall because of current economic conditions, according to Harry Dinken, vice president of human resources for Altec.

In a notice sent to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Dinken stated that the company is relocating operations for logistical/consolidation reasons indefinitely. Staff reductions began earlier this month and will last through Oct. 31. The closure affects 64 employees.

The facility was previously under the name of Lift-All until Altec LLC purchased the aerial lift and digger derrick manufacturer in 2008. Altec LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Altec Inc., Birmingham, Ala.
