Keurig Green Mountain Closes Plant

Castroville, CA - Vermont-based Keurig Green Mountain is closing a plant in California, leaving nearly 200 people without work.

The Castroville manufacturing and distribution center will officially close July 3, 2017, and all 183 employees will be laid off.

Keurig has owned the warehouse since 2010.

"It was a corporate decision. There was some rivalry between which of the plants was going to take over and be maintained. East coast prevailed versus the one here," said John Phillips, the Monterey County supervisor.

Keurig is offering employees transfers to the east coast plant, severance packages and retraining.

Keurig Green Mountain has yet to comment on the plant closure.
