Alexander & Hornung, a business unit of Perdue Premium Meat Company, Inc., has announced the closure of its St. Clair Shores, Michigan plant. The expected date of first separation is scheduled for Oct. 14.

In a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notifications letter dated Aug. 15 that was sent to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, the firm noted the entire facility will be closed by Jan. 26, 2024 and nearly all 132 employees at the facility will be impacted. There will not be any bumping rights for the affected employees, meaning employees will not be able to displace more junior employees out of their job positions as a result of this closure. The closure is expected to be permanent.

Known for its deli salami, Landjaeger sausage, Canadian bacon and boneless spiral ham, Alexander & Hornung had been in business for over 70 years before being acquired by PPMC in 2020.
