UNION CITY, Tenn. — A local factory is under new ownership.

Wednesday, Lennox announced the sale of its hearth plant in Union City, Tennessee, to the Comvest group.

In February, the plant's 250 workers found out the business was for sale.

Lennox decided to get out of fireplace manufacturing due to poor sales.

The all-cash deal between Lennox and Comvest closed Tuesday.

We are waiting to hear back on how the sale will affect employees.
