Future of Pittsville Homes in doubt


WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis (WSAU)  The future of Pittsville Homes is in doubt. The company manufactures prefab housing in Wood County.

Earlier this week there was a message on the company web site saying they'd be ceasing operations. That message - which said "after 40 years in the housing business, Pittsville Homes will be shutting down". Since then, the web site itself has been taken off-line.

The company hasn't commented. WSAW-TV is reporting that a sale is pending, but it's unclear if the sale involves the company's land or the company itself.

The state's Department of Workforce Development needs to be notified whenever a company lays off more than 50 people. They've received no notice from Pittsville Homes as of yesterday.
