WGIL Newsroom . Local News 303

A company that has been operating in Galesburg since 1972 has decided to stop operations.

Johnson Building Systems, located on McMasters Avenue in Galesburg has, for undetermined reasons, closed its doors.

Company CEO Paul Johnson confirmed the news to WGIL on Friday afternoon, but was unable to provide details surrounding the closure.

Johnson says he didn’t have any further comment on the situation.
Since the companies founding several decades ago, the firm has been responsible for the construction or remodeling of several structures in Galesburg.

The number of employees affected remains to be seen, although previous versions of the website have indicated more than five will lose their jobs.
The company’s website, at last check, was also taken down in conjunction with the business closing.
