Yarn processing plant to close, 190 workers affected

Beaulieu of America is closing its Eufaula yarn processingplant as a part of its efforts to streamline operations.  

190 Beaulieu employees will be affected with the closure taking place in the next60 days.

"Due to reduced sales brought on by the economy plus higher materials costs, wemade the decision to consolidate the Eufaula yarn processing capacity to our other facilities that are closer to our carpet mills inDalton, Georgia," said Ralph Boe, president and CEO of Beaulieu.

The Eufaula plant has been in operation since 1998.

Beaulieu says it will work to assist workers affected by the closure to findnew positions.
