The Boston Globe reported that the Necco Plant that was in Revere was “abruptly shut down Tuesday after the entity that bought the company at bankruptcy auction in May announced it had sold Necco to another candy manufacturer.”

According to their report, Round Hill Investments LLC purchased the company for $17.3 million back in May. The company sai that they were excited to bring Necco’s historical brands back and to be part of it’s resurgence.

So now the question remains: Will the candy hearts and Necco wafers be out of stock until 2020? Or will they have a new plant with new employees / another company manufacturing the candies before the end of the year?
