RJS Construction Group in Superior to Close
RJS Construction Group in Superior announced Tuesday that the company will shut down.
The closure will impact nine full-time salaried construction managers who work directly for RJS. Labor and other construction work at the firm is performed through contracted services.
The Board of Directors of Capstan Corp, the parent company of RJS, made the decision to close most functions of the Superior-based firm immediately.
“Unfortunately we have to recognize the economic changes and challenges that now exist in the marketplace. We will certainly honor all our obligations to our customers and to our business partners. We will work hard to find spots for the people at RJS who are affected by this decision. We have a number of other companies in our group, and we will do our best to help individuals find employment there,” said Capstan Chairman and CEO, Todd Johnson.
Operations are anticipated to wind down by the end of 2016.
The RJS Marine Division, which performs marine construction work throughout the region, will continue operations.
RJS President Pete Weidman and Vice President of Construction Services Dustin Waldo will remain with the company to ensure an orderly shut-down of business operations.
RJS is one of the Northland’s oldest full-service construction companies.
