RV and manufactured homes producer Fleetwood Enterprises Inc. said it will close its housing plant in Garrett, Ind., and terminate 87 workers.

Operations will cease by Aug. 31, according to a notice filed with the state of Indiana and reported by Manufacturing and Technology eJournal.

Workers are not represented by a union.

In March, the company shut down its travel trailer division and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The move included closing plants and service facilities in several states.

At that time, the Riverside, Calif.-based company said it employed more than 3,000 people in 15 plants located in 10 states. Fleetwood’s products are primarily marketed through extensive independent dealer networks throughout the United States and Canada.
