Patrick Industries Inc. has informed Indiana state officials that it will close its cabinet door plant in Elkhart due to the manufactured housing industry’s slump and “the inability to project positive future operating results,” according to the Elkhart Truth.
Patrick, also an RV industry supplier, will continue making cabinet doors in Woodburn, Ore.
About 67 jobs will be eliminated when Patrick permanently closes the factory in Elkhart sometime next month, according to Andy Nemeth, CFO.
Patrick, mainly a supplier/distributor of building materials, employs around 1,200 people nationwide, including about 500 in the Elkhart area.
