Lippert Components Manufacturing will close its Chester-area plant in South Carolina that makes mobile home windows and doors, a decision that will cut 134 jobs from the community.
This story by Ken Elkins originally appeared in the Charlotte Business Journal.
LCI plans to shutter the facility by the end of June, according to a Work Adjustment and Retraining Notification filed with the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce.
Layoffs begin June 1, the company told the state.
The plant, located at 524 Kinro Drive, northeast of Chester in Chester County, is part of a network of 65 manufacturing and distribution facilities operated by Lippert Components in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
The letter for the WARN notice, which was sent to the state on Tuesday, didn’t indicate the reason for shutting the Chester plant or provide details on whether the company will assist the impacted employees. Attempts to reach human resources officials in Elkhart for comment on the closing were unsuccessful on Friday.
