AFCO manufacturing operations to relocate to Tennessee and Brazil
Nearly 350 jobs will disappear when an Anderson County plant closes next year. AFCO — Associated Fuel Pump Systems Corporation — is a partnershop of Bosch and next-door neighbor DENSO. A Bosch spokesperson says fuel pump manufacturing will relocate to a Bosch plant in Brazil and a DENSO operation in Tennessee. The company says AFCO employees will be offered jobs at the neighboring Bosch and DENSO plants or severance packages with job-hunting personnel support.
