Warehouse to close in Southern Indiana; 52 jobs lost



Jasper, Indiana – The business has informed Indiana officials that a southern Indiana warehouse that stocks engineering parts will be permanently closed.

Starting on October 14, fifty-two positions will be removed.

In a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act notice to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Minnesota-based Arrowhead Engineered Products announces that it will close its Jasper, Indiana, warehouse at 1919 Hospitality Drive. This is the location of Jasper’s Stens Corp., which sells original and replica parts and accessories for golf, industrial, and outdoor power equipment. Stens was purchased by Arrowhead in 2016.

“All employees will be separated from Arrowhead employment unless they become employed elsewhere at Arrowhead,” says the company’s notice to Indiana officials. “The affected employees are not represented by any union. There are no bumping rights for any employees.”

“Customers of both companies will benefit from the combination, as Stens and Arrowhead share a common culture, goals, and a commitment to customer satisfaction,” Arrowhead stated at the time of the 2016 acquisition. When they work together, they can reach a larger combined client base with more goods and services.

Jasper, a city in Dubois County, with a population of over 16,700 people. It takes around two hours to get there from downtown Indianapolis.

Indiana has lost 830 jobs since August 1 and 1,018 since July 1 according to WARN reports. With the closure of Yellow Freight, there have been around 2,000 job losses since July 1.
