In its latest such announcement in recent weeks, Beaulieu of America has announced it will shut its Eufaula, Ala., yarn processing facility that it has operated since 1998. The closure will occur within the next 60 days and affect 190 Beaulieu associates.
“Due to reduced sales brought on by the economy plus higher materials costs, we made the decision to consolidate the Eufaula yarn processing capacity to our other facilities that are closer to our carpet mills in Dalton, Georgia,” said Ralph Boe, president and ceo of Beaulieu.
Boe acknowledged the “exemplary performance” of the Beaulieu associates at the Eufaula facility. “We very much appreciate their service to Beaulieu over the years, and we will work to assist in finding new positions for them, and provide opportunities in other sites as available.”
