Delta Faucet Co. will eliminate about 30 jobs at its headquarters in Carmel, the company said in a statement. Many of the positions were vacant.
Delta, a unit of Michigan-based Masco Corp., said the move was needed to respond to "challenging economic times, including an unprecedented downturn in the U.S. housing market and softening retailing activity ... ."
Affected employees have been offered severance and career counseling, the statement said.
Delta also said its Greensburg plant was idled on Nov. 2 to align production with demand.
