Associated Builders and Contractors reaches out to ex-Lamar workers

Updated: Tuesday, July 15, 2014

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Nearly 300 people are without a job after Hudsonville-based Lamar Construction closed last week, but that might not last very long.

We're told the full shutdown of Lamar Construction comes afer a bank pulled its line of credit to the company, following unexpected losses.

Now, the Western Michigan chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors are working to help those in need of a job.

Displaced construction workers looking for a job can reach out to member companies.

They can post resumes, search for jobs and be contacted by employers online by member companies.

They can also post directly on the Associated Builders website.
