Auto Parts Jobs Leave

Our region loses quite a few jobs. Not real good news in this period of time.

“A Rancho Cordova car-parts factory will lay off most of its workers next month, after completing the sale of much of its business to a competitor. Their jobs will be sent to Tijuana, Mexico.

“An estimated 144 workers will be let go by Automotive Importing Manufacturing Inc., or AIM, according to a notice filed with the state. The 40-year-old company remanufactures, or overhauls, used alternators and starters.

“Steve Seabourne, AIM president, said the layoffs follow the sale of most of AIM's business to Motorcar Parts of America Inc., a publicly traded company based in Torrance. The deal is set to close Friday.”
