MasterBrand Cabinets to cut 260 jobs

Layoffs at a Southern Indiana cabinet maker will effect 260 workers next month:

MasterBrand Cabinets plans to lay off 260 employees from its plants in Jasper, Huntingburg and Ferdinand in southwest Indiana's DuBois County.

Company officials say the cuts are being made so the company could remain competitive. The layoffs will take effect next month.

MasterBrand announced this month that it will close its facility in Cumberland County, Tenn., in February.

The company has been producing cabinets in Dubois County since 1954. It manufactures 13 brands, including Aristokraft and Decora.
