NEW ALBANY, Miss. (WTVA) - The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic forced Master-Bilt to lay off several employees at its New Albany facility.
The company released the following statement:
“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused sudden, dramatic, and unexpected conditions outside of our company’s control. The major economic downturn, combined with the governmental forced closures of many of our customers, has contributed to unforeseeable conditions which forced us to make very difficult decisions and lay off a number of employees in our New Albany facility on Friday, May 1. Master-Bilt remains open for business and continues working to best support our employees and customers.”
Ten Oaks Group recently purchased Master-Bilt from Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group.
