WHITEWATER HyPro, Inc. notified the state Thursday that it will close its Whitewater facility as part of an effort to consolidate operations, resulting in 62 employees losing their jobs.

The facility at 840 Executive Drive is expected to occur around Nov. 2, according to a notice sent to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

The decision was made based on changing business circumstances and as a result of consolidating operations, according to the letter. Bumping rights for the affected employees are not available.

HyPro makes components and performs complex assemblies. Its other locations are in Waterford, Platteville, Rhinelander and Berlin and Cedar Fall, Iowa, and Vinita, Okla.
