WSPA Staff - LAURENS Co., S.C. (WSPA) – About 250 workers are expected to lose their jobs when an Upstate plant closes.

A spokesman confirmed CB&I will close its plant in Laurens County for "economic reasons."

Employees found out about the closing on Friday morning. The plant is expected to close in March 2018.

CB&I provides infrastructure and technology to customers in the energy industry.
