Minnesota-based 3M will be closing a factory in Enfield that employs 142, and moving the work to two factories in Minnesota and one in Mexico.
The company owns three factories in the state, in Stafford Springs, Enfield and Meriden, the former headquarters of Cuno, founded there 102 years ago and sold to 3M in 2005.
The Meriden facility employs 311 and Stafford Springs employs 152.
“Everyone who is affected by this transition will have the opportunity to apply for other jobs anywhere in 3M,” said spokeswoman Donna Fleming Runyon. “We believe that several people will be able to move to Stafford Springs.”
The Enfield factory has 24 salaried positions and 118 production jobs.
“We told our employees about this at the end of February,” she said, and the phasing out of production in February will be completed by the end of the year.
