SUNBURY — Sixty-seven employees will be without a job after the announcement that Bimbo Bakeries USA in Sunbury will close. The plant at 249 N. 11th Street in Sunbury will close at the end of January. The company will shift production to its bakeries throughout Pennsylvania. The Sunbury bakery produces bread and buns.
Bill Bos, Vice President of Region Operations for Bimbo Bakeries USA said, “After careful analysis and consideration, we determined it is most efficient to redistribute production to another bakery in our system to better meet market demand.” He added that making the decision to close a facility is never an easy one.
