ROCHESTER HILLS, NY — Dura Automotive Systems, once the largest manufacturing employer in Tennessee’s Bledsoe County, will close its plant there in June and lay off the 80 workers left from a workforce that was 500 strong four years ago.

The Rochester Hills-based company began operating in Pikeville in 1980. Officials said its five other Tennessee plants will remain open.

Company officials blamed declining sales and foreign competition for the decision to close the plant, which makes automobile seat recliners and devices that raise and lower car windows.
