Fleet service company Ryder announced it will close its Beaver Dam facility by the end of the year.

In a letter to the state Department of Workforce Development and to Beaver Dam Mayor Rebecca Glewen, Ryder spokeswoman Chrissie Bristol said the facility will close Dec. 15.

About 100 employees are expected to be laid off when the facility, located at 1201 Green Valley Road, permanently ceases operations.

Workers do not have the option to take the place of less-senior employees if their position is cut, also known as “bumping rights,” Bristol said.

Employees who are laid off have access to the DWD’s Dislocated Worker Program, which provides transition assistance to workers. They may also access re-employment services at no charge from the state’s job centers.
