Roland Door Plant To Close

Posted: Updated:

Associated Press

ROLAND, OK -- About 220 people are expected to lose their job in the small eastern Oklahoma community of Roland as an Ohio-based door manufacturer announces plans to close its facility there.

Therma-Tru Corp. designs and produces residential fiberglass and steel exterior door systems. The company announced it will phase down production and ultimately close the Roland plant, effective
Sept. 30.

The majority of workers will be out of a job by the end of March, and most production will end by the end of June.

A company spokeswoman says employees will receive transition assistance including severance pay, benefits and job search training.

The company blamed the plant closing on the continuing downturn in the U.S. housing market.
