Air filter manufacturer CLARCOR announced Friday that it will lay off 40 Campbellsville employees. The layoffs were immediate.
Dave Lindsay, CLARCOR vice president and chief administrative officer, said the layoffs were the result of the loss of a customer.
"We had a very large customer that, all of a sudden, decided they were not going to do business with us," Lindsey said.
Lindsey said the customer had earlier led CLARCOR officials to believe it would actually increase its business with the company.
