After building 350,000 homes since 1946, Tampa Florida based Walter Industries is closing the doors on their home building division. They currently have 150 homes under construction and will complete all of these homes.
They employed over 230 people in the housing division and was recently named a best builder by the NAHB. The downturn in the housing industry brought about the decision to close.
“The story of Jim Walter Homes began as World War II ended and soldiers came home to pursue the American Dream,” chairman Michael T. Tokarz said. “Regrettably, it ends at a time when the fundamentals of the home building industry have deteriorated in ways never seen before.”
