FacadeTek eliminating 72 jobs in Whitestown

Glass fabricator FacadeTek Inc. has notified state officials that it will eliminate 72 jobs at its Whitestown facility in January.

The company did not return phone calls seeking comment on the layoffs.

Eliminated positions include 42 fabricators, 10 manufacturing supervisors and project managers, 10 laborers and six engineers.

The company, at 4485 S. Perry Worth Road in the Anson development near Interstate 65, operates from the same building as ASI Limited, which announced it was closing late last year, leading to the loss of about 200 jobs and a federal lawsuit.

ASI made curtain walls and exterior claddings for large projects throughout the country. Its work in downtown Indianapolis includes buildings such as the 33-story JW Marriott hotel, Lucas Oil Stadium and the Central Library.
