Door manufacturer to close Springfield plant

Posted online

Tampa, Florida-based Masonite International Corp. (NYSE: DOOR) is closing its door manufacturing plant in Springfield, resulting in 63 layoffs by year's end.  

The company disclosed the closure of the Partnership Industrial Center operation in a filing last week under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The filing indicates closure of the plant, which makes wooden doors in the “stile and rail” architectural design, will be phased out beginning July 2 through Dec. 31.

"The closure is the result of the need to optimize our operations by consolidating the architectural stile and rail production into the existing London, Ontario, plant," the filing reads.  

The company's investor relations website indicates it has roughly 8,500 customers in 60 countries.

Masonite entered Springfield in 2018 through the purchase of the operating assets of AADG Inc.’s wood door division, according to past reporting. The purchase included The Maiman Co. brand based in Springfield.

The Maiman Co. was named the 2001 Manufacturer of the Year by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce, according to past reporting.

Masonite owns the 44,740-square-foot plant on East Mustard Way, according to Greene County assessor records.  

In PIC, the plant is adjacent to Multi-Craft Contractors Inc., Nowata Printing Co. and L&W Industries.
