MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) – Officials say a McCook company is moving to Minnesota.

The 15 workers at Springer Magrath’s McCook plant have been given severance packages, but some of them have inquired about transferring instead to Glencoe, Minn., where the new plant is being located.

Amy Scheel is a vice president at Springer Magrath’s parent company, Frandsen Corp., of North Branch, Minn. According to the McCook Daily Gazette, the company is still discussing the transfer requests.

Scheel says the McCook plant will remain in operation through Oct. 28. Work at the new plant begins Nov. 1.

The company makes and sells stock prods and other animal care products.

Scheel says Frandsen is moving Springer Magrath because of the difficulty in maintaining operations over such a long distance.
