Yakima Jeld-Wen Factory closing
YAKIMA -- Workers at the JELD-WEN facility in Yakima are losing their jobs. The company has announced it is permanently ceasing all operations at the facility on April 5, 2019.
Employees at the Yakima facility on N 6th Ave were told on Friday of the planned shutdown. They were also told there would be severance packages offered to them.
JELD-WEN says that the company has a program in place to either retain talent or assist employees with outplacement services.
A representative for JELD-WEN tells KIMA, "...our overall business remains strong. The Yakima facility closure will support our value of improving daily by doing everything we can to advance the way we operate and do business."
