Pak-Mor Manufacturing of San Antonio is closing after 51 years. The move by the maker of garbage-truck equipment will leave about 50 workers without jobs.
Pak-More filed for Chapter Eleven bankruptcy protection last week in San Antonio. Now President Jimmie Thurmond III said the company will go out of business.
The company agreed to sell its production equipment to JEB Properties for $290,000.
Thurmond said the buyers will probably move production from San Antonio to Mexico.
Thurmond, who is grandson of the company's founder, blamed the demise on the weak economy and high costs for insurance and workers compensation.
