Seventy-five workers at the Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope company in Shawnee will lose their jobs in early 2023 as the operation will be shut down in February.
The Oklahoma Office of Workforce Development received this week the required Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification or WARN Act.
David Terry, Regional Vice President/General Manager South Central for Oldcastle BuildingEnvelope stated that the move is to permanently close the facility located at 10000 N. Harrison Street in Shawnee. He explained that employees received a general notice this week and that the layoffs will take place beginning on Feb. 5, 2023 with the facility to be fully closed by March 31, 2023.
It was in February of this year when KPS Capital Partners, LP acquired Oldcastle from CRH plc for nearly $3.45 billion in cash.
