ProBuild to close Texas plant

Building products giant ProBuild will close its Jarrell, Texas, manufacturing plant, the company confirmed today.

The company plans to close the manufacturing facility in November, with about 85 workers to be affected by the move – about half of the plant’s employees will be laid off, and half will be offered jobs at other ProBuild locations.

ProBuild plans to continue servicing its Austin-area customers through other area locations, according to the company.

ProBuild currently operates more than 550 lumber and building product distribution, manufacturing, and assembly centers serving 41 U.S. states.
