Schott Solar will be closing its 200,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in Albuquerque.
The company once billed the plant as its flagship facility in North America. It produces photovoltaic panels and thermal receivers for large-scale solar power plants.
More than 200 people work there. They were told Thursday about the closure.
Schott spokesman Matthew Kraft declined to immediately provide details about why the company was ending operations in Albuquerque.
