Massachusetts candy company plant abruptly closes
REVERE, Mass. (AP) — The owner of a company that makes candies such as Necco wafers
and Sweethearts has unexpectedly shut down operations at its Massachusetts plant.
The Boston Globe reports Round Hill Investments LLC announced Tuesday it is selling
Necco brands to another confection manufacturer and closing down its Revere plant.
The company had recently purchased Necco for $17.3 million at a bankruptcy auction
Round Hill did not identify Necco's new owner or say if candy production will resume.
The closure came as a shock to the close to 230 workers at the plant who say they
were told to pick up their final paychecks Friday.
Necco is the country's oldest continuously operating candy company.
