The Janesville Acoustics facility will close its doors in Norwalk.
Corporate officials were at Plant 60 this morning and announced the company will begin phasing out workers through the end of 2014.
The plant presently employs about 296 people, including hourly and salaried.
Janesville officials talked about the phase-out plans.
"These plans come in response to market pressures, including increased demand from customers to manufacture in closer proximity to their operations," the company said in a prepared statement.
"The company intends to establish a new plant in Kansas, Missouri or Nebraska before the close of 2013, a location within reach of the assembly plants of many current Janesville Acoustics customers," officials said.
The Norwalk plant is scheduled to permanently close by the end of 2014, with the earliest signs of the phase-out period commencing this fall, officials added.
