SILVER LAKE – Wabash Valley Manufacturing in Silver Lake is closing and will lay off about 80 employees early next year.
The manufacturing plant produces commercial grade park benches, picnic tables, and trash receptacles.
The company has notified the state of Indiana it is closing the plant and will start layoffs in January.
The company says it is closing in large part due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its business operations. The company says it serves park departments, amusement parks, and restaurants.
Wabash Valley says it expects to begin layoffs on January 15 and should be completed by March 19.
The company was founded in 1981, according to Bloomberg.com.
