The Christiansburg, Va., CraftMaster manufacturing plant will close on January 31, 2014, according to Jeld-Wen, CraftMaster’s parent company.
This move impacts 109 employees.
“Christiansburg employees are being encouraged to transfer to other Jeld-Wen production facilities as the company continues to supply customer orders from larger, more efficient facilities within its network,” officials from the parent company wrote in a statement.
“The company will provide moving allowances to employees who choose to transfer to other Jeld-Wen locations. For those not transferring, in addition to severance benefits, the company will provide job-finding assistance prior to the expected closure,” they added.
