A Purina Mills Inc. plant near Hagerstown won't be affected by the company's bankruptcy filing, a spokesman said Friday.
A spokesman for the St. Louis, Mo.-based company announced Thursday the company and 10 of its affiliates had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy as part of a financial restructuring.
The company has $350 million in unsecured debt resulting from its purchase by Koch Industries Inc. in 1998, spokesman Max Fisher said.
Fourteen employees work at a Hagerstown plant at 11671 Hopewell Road, Plant Manager Troy Miller said.
"It is business as usual. There will be absolutely no interruption to employees or the manufacturing of the product," Fisher said.
