Google's Motorola handset unit will apparently soon be closing down their factory in Fort Worth Texas. The factory has only been open since May of 2013 and currently employs around 700 workers. At its high, the factory employed around 3,800, mostly through contract manufacturer Flextronics International Ltd. The factory is expected to close by the end of this year, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Shortly after the factory opened last year, former Motorola Chief Exec Dennis Woodside said "that it would challenge conventional wisdom that manufacturing in the U.S. is too expensive." Employees at the Fort Worth facility are tasked with assembly of the Moto-X to be sold within the US. Things obviously didn't work out quite as planned however, as Motorola President Rick Osterloh notes "What we found was that the North American market was exceptionally tough."
