In a release posted to its Facebook the company says it’s because it has been having trouble staffing the previous 7-day work week.

For employees who can shift to working Monday through Thursday are able to take open positions, the release said.

It also said, while the company loves being in Versailles, it is not immune to workforce challenges that exist today nationwide.

The release didn’t say how many people lost their jobs in the consolidation, but the company says on its Facebook the factory employs about 300 people total.
