Westech Building Products LLC is closing its Mount Vernon, Ind., vinyl fence, deck and railing factory, the company told Indiana state regulators in an Aug. 23 letter.
The company said in a letter required by the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act that 81 employees at the nonunion plant will lose their jobs and that the shutdown is expected to be completed by Nov. 21.
"This action is expected to be permanent, and the entire plant will be closed," the company wrote.
Westech, which is part of publicly traded resin maker Westlake Chemical Corp., did not respond immediately to questions about the closing.
Westech's website said it also has a window, door, decking and custom profile extrusion plant in Calgary, Alberta, as well as a production facility in China.
