Watkins & Shepard Trucking learned this week that its new owners are shutting down their Missoula maintenance facility effective immediately, leaving about a dozen people out of work.

It comes about a month after it was bought by Schneider trucking out of Green Bay, Wisconsin acquired Watkins & Shepard in June. We asked back then what impact the new ownership would have in Missoula but didn't get an answer.

But in a statement Thursday, Schneider announced it's closing the maintenance facility in Missoula and one in California and that will leave 28 workers between the two shops out of a job.
