Elkay to Close New Ulm Cabinet Door Operation 09 Apr 18

Representatives of Oak Brook, Illinois based Elkay Wood Products met local government representatives to announce their plans to cease manufacturing cabinet doors in the New Ulm plant.

Although the company has maintained two dimension mill operations for several years, neither has been operating at their full capacity. For that reason, the company plans to consolidate their cabinet door manufacturing operations and discontinue manufacturing cabinet components in the New Ulm facility.

The company is encouraging the 105 people currently employed there to apply for positions at their four other cabinet assembly plants and remaining dimension mill in Pennsylvania.
