Salt Lake City-based Custom Brands Group is shuttering its Jacksonville operation and laying off 79 employees, the company announced Friday.
Custom Brands Group, a subsidiary the Hunter Douglas Fabrication Co., filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Notice with the state announcing it would be closing its facility located at 8801 Corporate Square Court.
The custom blind and window manufacturer and designer announced the first employees will be let go April 17 with most occurring by June 9. The company added that a small group of approximately six critical employees will likely remain employed by Custom Brands Group into the second or third quarter of 2023.
The affected employees at this facility are not represented by any union, the company said in the notice.
The bulk of the positions impacted by the layoffs are listed as assemblers but also include general manager, senior production supervisor and the vice president of manufacturing and operations.
The company's 110,000-square-foot space in Arltington is primarily devoted to custom-crafted shutter, vertical blinds and roller shades fabrication, and was in operation for more than 40 years, according to Custom Brands Group's website.
Custom Brands Group and the Hunter Douglas Fabrication Company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Custom Brands Group was acquired in November 2021 when the Hunter Douglas Fabrication Co. bought CBG's parent company M&B Miniblind Co. Hunter Douglas Fabrication was itself acquired when 3G Capital purchased a controlling stake of the company in February 2022.
