      Future of Wright and Filippis locations uncertain

      There has been some concern over the possible closing of the Wright and Filippis locations in Marquette and Escanaba.

      Wright and Filippis provides home medical equipment, prosthetics and orthotics. It is unclear whether the locations in Marquette and Escanaba remain open.

      In a statement from the company, Wright and Filippis says that they are now focused on their "core business lines", which they say are prosthetics, orthotics, mobility and access.

      The statement also says they divested their respiratory and medical equipment operations to Lincare.

      Some employees have been transferred to Lincare, while some positions have been eliminated.
