UPDATE 1-Harman to close facility affecting 130 jobs

Jan 14 (Reuters) - Harman International Industries Inc HAR.N said it will close its consumer audio facility in Woodbury, New York, by the end of June, affecting about 130 employees, as part of a consolidation effort.

A limited number of employees will be offered relocation, said the audio products company, which was the subject of a failed takeover bid by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co [KKR.UL] and GS Capital Partners.

Harman said it will be consolidating most functions now based in its Woodbury, New York offices into its existing facility in Northridge, California.

Shares of Harman closed down about 7 percent at $18.66 Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Adheesha Sarkar in Bangalore; Editing by Deepak Kannan)
