HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan construction company says it's shutting down all of its operations, after announcing a partial shutdown earlier this week.
Carl Blauwkamp (BLOW'-camp), president and CEO of Lamar Construction Company, tells the Grand Rapids Press (http://bit.ly/1kLMW9f ) Friday that all of its 280 employees will be affected. About 170 employees live in west Michigan, 80 in Colorado and 30 in Kentucky. He adds a revival of the 76-year-old company is unlikely.
The full shutdown comes after a bank pulled its line of credit to the company following unexpected losses. Blauwkamp (BLOW'-camp) declined to comment further.
The newspaper reported Wednesday, the company announced it was closing its construction operations, laying off 180 employees.
