A Ford dealership in New Hampshire is closing for good after more than six months.

The dealership is one of many in the state where Ford says production will be cut by more than 700 jobs, or about 20 percent.

The closure follows months of layoffs at Ford Motor Co., where the company announced in September that it would lay off 1,000 workers in the U.S. in what’s called a cost-cutting exercise.

Ford says the layoffs were necessary to meet demand for the next-generation Focus and Escape.

Ford also announced in November that it will close two of its U.K. factories, where it makes the Mustang and Mustang GT, by the end of this year.

Ford said it would invest $1 billion to create 500 jobs in the UK.
