The Craftmaster plant in Christiansburg is closing, according to several employees.
The employees tell WDBJ7 that they were given notice Monday that the plant will close.
Craftmaster was bought earlier this year by Jeld-Wen.
The Christiansburg plant manager referred calls to Jeld-Wen’s corporate spokesperson. WDBJ7 has not heard back from Jeld-Wen.
According to the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, Craftmaster employed 132 full-time workers in 2008. That’s the last year Craftmaster was a member of the chamber of commerce.
One employee told WDBJ7 that workers have been given the option of moving to another plant out of state.
Craftmaster makes doors. Jeld-Wen's headquarters are in Oregon.
