Keystone RV has announced that they are closing down two of its Goshen (Indiana) factories, leaving over 300 employees out of work.
On Monday, Keystone submitted a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development.
As per a report, on September 23, Keystone RV plans to shut down Goshen Plants 705 and 41, which will eliminate 334 jobs from production to plant management, from quality control to receiving.
The last time Keystone RV shut down a plant was in 2009, which affected more than 200 employees.
Despite short-term closures impacting businesses, there is hope that openings will be coming back soon.
The City of Goshen expressed concerns about factory closings and said they are working with business and industry leaders to understand the situation better and see what may come in the future.
The Sourwood Drive closure affects 183 employees, including two employees in plant management, 165 employees in production, six employees in quality control, and ten employees in receiving.
The Lincolnway East closure affects 151 employees, including three employees in plant management, 133 employees in production, four employees in quality control, and 11 employees in receiving.
