Bimbo Bakeries closing Harrisburg plant

BIMBOSUNBURY – As Bimbo Bakeries USA has announced the closing of its Harrisburg facility, Sara Lee employees may be holding their breath. According to a news release, Bimbo plans to close their Stroehmann bakery in Harrisburg by mid-September, eliminating 84 jobs. They plan to transfer the production to their Lehigh Valley and Hazelton bakeries.

Last year at this time, Bimbo announced the closing of their Easton facility. That closing eliminated 78 union jobs. WKOK is still waiting to hear back from the company’s spokesman about any plans for the Sunbury plant. Following last year’s announcement, Bimbo spokesman Shane Sumrow said the Sunbury Sara Lee plant never came up in conversation, so people should not be worried about any upcoming changes there. We will update you with the latest comments as we hear back from the company. (Codi Jade)
