Patrick Industries to lay off 44 workers in Elkhart

The South Bend Tribune reports that Patrick Industries in Elkhart will lay off 44 workers within the next month:

About 44 people could find themselves out of work within the next 30 days at a Patrick Industries plant southwest of the city.

The Elkhart-based Patrick, which supplies laminate materials and doors to the RV industry, said Monday it is ceasing production of interior passage doors for RVs and motor homes.The company recently acquired Adorn LLC, a competitor also based in Elkhart.

The layoffs announced Monday had nothing to do with that acquisition, which closed in late May, said Lyle Goward, corporate human resources director.
