Therma-Tru to Add Positions in Move to Indiana

March 16, 2009

Therma-Tru Doors will add 150 positions at its Butler, Ind., plant after it finishes moving  manufacturing capacity from the plant it is closing in Roland, Okla., the company announced last week. The company currently employs about 500 at the exterior door manufacturing operation in Indiana.

The door maker will invest about $5 million to consolidate manufacturing operations in Butler. The company announced the plans at a joint press conference with Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels.

"Therma-Tru is pleased to provide some relief to the local economy during this uncertain time, and we appreciate the assistance of Indiana officials in helping Therma-Tru and our associates continue to pursue our business goals, as well as their willingness to help the people of Indiana," said Dave Randich, president of Therma-Tru.

The company announced the official closing of its Oklahoma facility in January. The Oklahoma facility is expected to cease operations in September.
