MUNCIE – A packaging company in Muncie has informed the state it plans to lay off 261 workers over the next few months.
DIY Group President Phil Durham said the company is laying off roughly half its workforce.
DIY Group packages products and displays for national manufacturers and retailers. The notice sent to the state cited the loss of a contract with Jarden Home Brands as causing the layoffs. In July, Jarden said it was moving its corporate headquarters to Indianapolis.
