MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) – A Medford electronics factory is shutting down, and as many as 80 workers could be out of jobs.

Employees at Kathrein Inc.’s Scala Division were told this week the company’s Medford operations will be phased out by the end of 2015.

The Mail Tribune reports a production plant is being built in Mexico, and a sales office is being established in Dallas. Warehouse distribution will continue out of Richmond, Va.

Local employees produced antennas, radio frequency filters and accessories for wireless communication, television and FM radio broadcasting, paging systems, wireless loop and Internet.
