JELD-WEN Inc is the latest door manufacturer in Washington state to announce closure plans because of intense competition from China.

The company’s Everett plant will shut at the end of October, with about 80 workers offered jobs at JELD-WEN’s 100 other sites throughout the US.

Another manufacturer, West Coast Door Inc stopped production in July, with the company blaming the decision on high volume imports of Chinese doors.

The two remaining door manufacturers in Washington, Buffelen Woodworking Co and Simpson Door Co have switched to the expensive, custom end of the market in a bid to survive the Chinese invasion.

US duties on Canadian softwood lumber imports have also hurt the state’s door industry, as Chinese manufacturers are able to source Canadian lumber duty-free, unlike the average 20% tax American companies pay for the same wood.
