Jeld-Wen, a window and door manufacturer based in Oregon, announced on Monday that they will close their Dubuque facility on March 28, leaving 52 people without jobs.
The Dubuque facility, which makes pressed wood-fiber products that are used in the making of interior doors, was acquired in 1978.
The company says they have ample production of wood-fiber materials at other plants.
Jeld-Wen says the 52 employees may transfer to other facilities, including their door and window facility in Grinnell. Those who decide not to transfer will be offered a severance package and job search assistance.
The company says a job fair will also be held to help the employees find local employment.
