American Woodmark will close in Perry County

Several sources tell Mountain News that American Woodmark will close its facility at the Coal Fields Industrial Park north of Hazard early next year.

We were told the layoffs will begin in January and this will affect 150 to 175 people.

Judge Executive Denny Ray Noble confirms he was given this information, but has not talked directly to company officials.

He says it will be devastating to the county.

We understand employees were told about the facility shutting down during a meeting Monday afternoon and had no idea this was coming.

We were unable to reach any company officials.

American Woodmark makes kitchen and bath cabinets.
