MD Elektronik, a Germany-based automotive supplier which recently opened a new manufacturing site in Guanajuato, plans to consolidate more production work this facility in the near term.

For that end the company will close a production plant in Jamestown, New York, shifting the output capacity to the Mexican operation by the end of year. 

MD Electronics notified the state Labor Department it will make the first of the 87 job cuts in late December and finish all 94 layoffs two weeks later. MD opened the Jamestown facility, its first U.S. production site, in 2009. 

The plant makes cables used in auto audio systems and vehicle cameras for customers including Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes assembly facilities.
