A company that was based in Elkhart County, but moved to Florida taking hundreds of jobs with it, is going out of business.

That is according to reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth.

In January of last year, Medtec closed its Goshen plant, moving operations to Florida and taking 175 jobs with it.

Now, the company has stopped taking orders for new ambulances and will close the production line by january 2013. That will be a loss of 325 jobs.

The company blames smaller budgets for declining profits.
