BEVERLY, W.Va. (AP) - A wood flooring production facility in West Virginia announced that it would temporarily layoff and furlough several employees due to decreased demand because of the coronavirus pandemic.
AHF Products said in a statement Wednesday that the cuts would affect 215 employees at the Beverly plant, including supervisors, salaried operators, and maintenance and support staff.
Plant manager Blaine Emery says the decreased demand has forced the company to "reassess its workforce needs."
He said the measures are temporary and the company will put employees back to work as soon as possible.
