LOUDON (WATE) - A car muffler plant in Loudon is closing its doors, leaving 150 people out of work.

Maremont General Manager Jim Kozar says the plant will close in 30 days. The plant's employees were notified Friday.

Kozar says the company lost its contract with their largest customer, who decided to go with a competitor.

Maremont is an after-market exhaust manufacturer, which has been located in Loudon for 30 years.

Company officials say they will work with the local government and community during the transition.
