Quest Nutrition, the El Segundo-based protein bar-maker, will shutter two of its manufacturing facilities in Los Angeles and lay off 524 employees.

The company filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) notice last month to permanently close its City of Industry and Walnut facilities.

It occupies an estimated 181,000 square feet at its City of Industry plant at 18551 Arenth Avenue, according to CoStar. The location will begin laying off 402 workers starting Oct. 12, the Los Angeles Business Journal reported.

The Walnut facility at 381 S Brea Canyon Road will lay off 122 workers effective Oct. 26. The industrial site is 298,050 square feet, according to data firm CompStak.

Quest was not immediately available for comment.

The manufacturer launched in 2010 and saw sales of $101 million last year, according to market research firm IRI. [LABJ] — Subrina Hudson
