(Aurora, Ind.) – There are layoffs rumored at Matthews International’s casket manufacturing plant in Aurora – formerly Aurora Casket.

Multiple employees tell Eagle Country 99.3 that about 40 employees are due to be laid off near the end of this month.

A spokesperson for Matthews International declined to comment on the rumored layoffs Friday.

It’s the most recent layoff announcement from the company since Pennsylvania-based Matthews International purchased Aurora Casket in 2015. In a July 27 news release announced earnings for the fiscal 2017 third quarter, Matthews noted that the integration of Aurora Casket remains on track.
