Weather Shield leaders say Park Falls facility will close
PARK FALLS (WAOW) -- Leaders at the Park Falls Weather Shield facility announced they'll be closing their doors for good and moving their remaining production lines to Medford and Mosinee.
The company makes patio and entry doors. This is the second time employees have heard news about layoffs in the past year. Last December, Weather Shield leaders said they planned to start laying off workers in January. But later, company leaders said they'd come to an agreement to keep their staff onboard.
About 150 people work at the Park Falls location. The company did not specify whether employees would be laid off or moved. A spokeswoman was not available for comment.
