CertainTeed notifies workers, state of pending layoffs at Vigo County plant

TERRE HAUTE — CertainTeed, a siding and paint manufacturer in the Vigo County Industrial Park, plans to lay off more than half of its local employees.

In a letter to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, CertainTeed’s president of the siding products group, Mark A. Rayfield, stated the company will lay off 53 of the 84 workers at its Vigo County plant.

The advisory letter — an official Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) notice to state officials — is required by law.

The move was prompted by the “sustained recession in the housing, construction and remodeling markets,” the letter states.

Workers were informed of the pending layoffs — set to take effect April 30 — on Friday.
