B.F. Rich Windows and Doors is shutting its doors after 60 years of being in business.

The Ogletown company produced energy-efficient doors and windows.

But the Wilmington News Journal reports that the firm has been struggling for almost ten years and never recovered from the Great Recession that began in 2007.

So this week the company informed its 130 employees that it would be going out of business.

The paper reports that the company had been close to being sold but the deal fell through in the last few weeks and reported there were no details about any potential sale.

The paper also reported that a number of workers it contacted said there would be no severance pay.

The company declined to comment on severance packages.
