Concrete Products company to lay off as many as 115 in May

Mar, 16 2010


Jacksonville-based Gate Concrete Products Co. today announced a potential layoff of between 20-115 workers in May.

Gate Construction Materials Group President and COO Dean Gwin said employees have been notified of the potential layoff and its range. A state Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Web site reported a potential layoff of 115 from May 15-29.

“Due to the declining commercial construction market, Gate may be forced to reduce its work force,” Gwin said in a statement. “Gate continues to actively market and bid projects and expects to avoid drastic work force reductions.”

Gate Concrete Products produces prestressed concrete products for use in bridges and building structures throughout the southeast on an 85-acre facility, according to its Web site. The components are used in commercial, industrial and Department of Transportation marine and structural projects.

The company, located at 402 Zoo Parkway, is the oldest non-petroleum division of Gate Petroleum — the company acquired it in 1980, according to a Gate Web site. Gwin said the facility has provided structural materials for projects including the Dames Point Bridge, Buckman Bridge, the Interstate 95-295 exchange and the Interstate 95-10 exchange.
