The New Hampshire Attorney General’s office heads to court this morning to ask a judge to freeze the assets of a Claremont company that shut down last week, costing 120 workers their jobs.

The state charges that the owners of Customized Structures, Inc., are not complying with a federal requiring them to pay 60 days’ severance or give 60 days notice before laying off more than 100 workers. The company has agreed to two weeks of severance pay for the workers.

A spokeswoman for Watermill Ventures, a Massachusetts company that is one of the investors in the factory, says the company did all it could to remain open, but is a victim of the housing market slow down.

The factory designed and manufactured modular homes and buildings.
