A business in McHenry plans to shutter its doors in October and lay off 25 workers.
Stack-On, which offers storage products such as gun and personal safes, has announced its plans to close both its Wauconda and McHenry locations, according to a report filed to the state under the Illinois Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act.
The first layoff date for both locations is Oct. 12. Workers aren’t represented by a union, the report said.
The Wauconda location closing will displace 128 workers, according to the report.
The closings are in part due to tariffs imposed by the Trump administration on metal from China. The company plans to relocate to Juarez, Mexico.
McHenry Economic Development Director Doug Martin said the
company had moved in the building at 1301 Ridgeview Drive in 2015.
“I have spoken to a broker about the building,” he said. “We have been in contact several times so it is actively being marketed. I don’t know of any deals that have been consummated as of this time, but it’s being marketed and I am working to assist in any way I can.”
