Corsi to Close Facility I N D I A N A P O L I S , I N — The Corsi Group, headquartered here, has an- nounced that it will cease operations at its Keysville, VA production facility. The Keysville plant has made Siteline Cabin- etry since opening in April of 2015. The company is working diligently to assure all displaced employees have adequate time to identify and secure new em- ployment. Keysville cabinet operations will stop effective August 31, 2018, and Siteline will be made in the company's Elkins, WV and Indianapolis, IN man- ufacturing plants. A few employees will remain in Keysville to oversee the removal of inventory and equipment, which will be consolidated into the com- pany's other two plants. "This is a tough business decision; however, we are committed to the lon- gevity of all our brands, and optimizing the available capacity at our other two plants," commented Pat Corsi, chairman and CEO for The Corsi Group. "Today's cabinet climate is in flux, but fortunately we are agile, assuring that the overall health of our company is strong," he added. Company President Ken Pfarr noted, "We already have the ca- pabilities and skills in our Elkins and Indianapolis plants to build and ship full access cabinets, and this consolidation leverages those strengths." He continued, "We have begun the transition process for moving Siteline production to the other plants, and we foresee no disruption in our scheduled delivery cycles."
