NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) — The owners of the Twin Rivers Foods plant in Neosho says it will close on April 6, costing 485 workers their jobs.

The Fayetteville, Ark.-based company's human resources director, Doug Quillen, notified the state on Tuesday of plans to close the chicken deboning plant.

The Joplin Globe reports that in a letter to the state, Quillen said the closing would be permanent. He did not give a reason for the action.

This is the second announcement of a plant closing in Neosho in the last two months.

Brass Eagle, a paintball manufacturing operation, announced in late December that it will close in mid-February, costing about 60 workers their jobs.
