Cabinet Maker Closes Perry County Plant

Dec 15, 2011

Major Perry County employer American Woodmark plans to close its plant, which produces parts for kitchen and bathroom cabinets, next spring. It's part of a series of moves the company, based in Winchester, Va., is making, including closing a plant in West Virginia, to combat a downturn stemming from the economy's struggles. The plant in Chavies employs 156 and was established in 2002.
