Editors Note APNewsNow.
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) _ More than 200 employees in central Illinois may lose their jobs after a manufacturing company announced it is opening a new distribution center in Indianapolis.
The News-Gazette reports Rockwell Automation, which makes automated manufacturing products, will be closing two locations in Champaign in about a year.
Rockwell Automation Spokesman Bruce Quinn says employees will have the opportunity to apply for similar jobs at the Indianapolis plant.
Quinn said the change is ``part of optimizing what we do and how we do it.''
