Monarch layoffs coming



December 20, 2011 - 12:00 AM

HUMBOLDT — A production shutdown at Monarch Cement Co.’s plant here has been pushed back to mid-January, Walter Wulf Jr., Monarch president, told the Register Monday afternoon.

“We thought originally the shutdown would be before Christmas, but we’ve had better sales with good (construction) weather, at least before today,” Wulf said. 

“And it’s taken longer for us to complete some maintenance projects,” he said, noting that it made little sense to use overtime to do maintenance work so a layoff could start sooner.
