This month, Semling Menke Company Inc. submitted a WARN with the Wisconsin Dislocated Worker Unit. The letter explains that Semco Windows and Doors will be laying off workers and closing two facilities in Merrill, Wisconsin.
- 605 North Ohio Street
- 410 Douglas Street
The closure is the result of the company’s inability to acquire further financing. The company has been trying to obtain additional financing to keep the Merrill operations intact but it has been unsuccessful and has been unable to provide notice until December 30, 2019.
The action will result in the immediate termination of all positions or roughly 120 employees in Wisconsin. The positions were eliminated at the close of business on December 31, 2019.
Some of the workers are represented by a union and may have bumping rights. The full WARN has been made available here.
