Stupp Corporation to layoff over 100 employees
BATON ROUGE - Pipeline fabricator Stupp Corporation announced layoffs for its Baton Rouge location early Friday evening.
Stupp says up to 114 employees will be affected by the layoffs planned for Feb. 22 to Mar. 14. Stupp says the layoffs will last for longer than 6 months.
The company said it remains hopeful that bids on some projects will be accepted, generating business for its yard, but that it recently was notified it had not been selected as the vendor on several other projects.
The company also cited a poor oil and gas market as a factor in spawning the need to eliminate some jobs.
