PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- A northern Arizona plant that has manufactured components for the aerospace industry since the late 1940s will close early next year.

The Daily Courier reported Thursday that the PCC Aerostructures plant in Prescott is expected to close Feb. 3.

Officials with Portland, Ore.-based Precision Castparts declined comment on the reason for the shutdown.

The former Fortner Aerospace plant in Prescott was bought last year by Precision Castparts, which makes airfoil castings for aircraft engines and industrial gas turbines.

The Courier reported 80 jobs will be eliminated by the plant's closure.

PCC Aerostructures employees split into three groups Wednesday to meet with representatives of Yavapai Workforce Connection of the Northern Arizona Council of Governments to learn about opportunities for displaced workers.
