It's can't be all of Keystone in Indiana because some of the production is being consolidated in Goshen, IN.

Keystone & Jayco Layoffs

But Keystone already layed off 290 people in Goshen last summer, so there is plenty of "hurt" to go around. Keystone has about 15 separate facilities in the Goshen area.

I read an article yesterday that Keystone is laying off approximately 350 people which would equal about 15% of their complete work force
and plant to re-hire them back if/when the economy picks up.
