Wichita plant closing this summer, costing 54 jobs

KSAL StaffApril 4, 2014

A Wichita plant that makes metal carts for audio-visual equipment plans to close this summer, meaning a loss of 54 jobs.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Advance Products plant will close at the end June. The company’s owner, Da-Lite, said the Wichita facility will remain open until then.

Da-Lite spokeswoman Melissa Rone said the Wichita operation was no longer sustainable because the demand for AV equipment carts has fallen with the declining use of overhead projectors and VCR’s.

Cart manufacturing will move to the company’s headquarters in Warsaw, Ind.

Da-Lite, a maker of projection screens, bought Advance Products and the Wichita plant in 1995.
