MILPITAS, CA -- Creation Technologies will close its plant here by April, according to a mandatory filing with the state of California.

On Jan. 5, Creation Technologies notified the state that it would permanently close the Milpitas factory and lay off its 177 workers by April 20. Workers were notified on Dec. 4, according to the filing.

California’s WARN law requires certain companies with more than 75 employees to provide 60 days advance notice of a plant closing or mass layoff involving 50 or more employees.

The EMS company has already scrubbed the Milpitas site from its website.

Creation moved to the 80,000 sq. ft. location in 2012, merging separate sites in Santa Clara and San Jose. Come April, its remaining US manufacturing plants will be in Dallas, Milwaukee, Chicago and St. Peter, MN. It also has factories in Canada, where it is headquartered, China and Mexico.
