CB&I will close its Addis facility

ADDIS, LA (WAFB) - CB&I will close its Pipe Fabrication facility in Addis effective Jan. 31.

Officials sent a letter to the Louisiana Workforce Commission on Thursday saying the decision was made for economic reasons. The closure will affect about 126 employees.

“We expect that the first layoffs at this facility will occur Sept. 22 to about Oct. 5,” says Margaret Phillips, senior counsel, for CB&I. “We expect the layoffs will continue after Oct. 5 and through the date of closure.”

Employees will be notified 60 days in advance of their layoff date.
