SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KXTV/CNN) - Coca Cola is closing its bottling and distribution plant in Sacramento, California, two months after buying the operation.

That could cost 60 employees their jobs.

The bottling plant has been a fixture on Stockton Boulevard since 1936 and produces about 9 million cases of product a year.

But now Coke says it doesn't need the facility. Employees are being told to reapply for openings at facilities in Natomas and Modesto.

"I don't know what I'm going to do after this, so, I've been doing the same thing for over 25 years," said James Wilks.

Workers tell local station KXTV that the plant will close in the next 30 to 90 days, likely by June.

Coca Cola says it will be in discussion with the employees union about the impact on employees and closure dates.
