Atwood Relocating

Here's an update to a story we first told you about in January.

Atwood Mobile Products had been considering moving out of the Rockford area and apparently the company has decided to do just that. It will consolidate and relocate its two local plants by the end of the year.

According to the Rockford Register Star, Atwood will eliminate 406 jobs and end its 94-year relationship with the Rock River Valley.

Atwood's corporate headquarters will move to Elkhart, Indiana.

A newspaper there says 40 professional-level jobs will be moved from Rockford to Elkhart.
