Farley's and Sathers is closing some of its confectionery operations in Chattanooga in the wake of its recent merger with Chicago-based Ferrara Pan.

According to a statement, Farley's & Sathers' packaging and distribution functions in Chattanooga will be consolidated into existing facilities within the newly combined network.

As a result, the Cummings Road facility in Chattanooga will be closed this fall, as will its Sather Trucking Co. based in Chattanooga. The Jersey Pike operation is slated to remain open, according to the company.

The company employs about 300 people in Chattanooga.
