Milliken to shut down Barnwell textile plant

31
Dec '08
Milliken & Company recently announced that in the month of January it will start cutting operation of the textile plant located in Barnwell County and will pull its shutters down by mid -2009.

Nearly 125 workers will lose their jobs. Declining market demand, stiff global competition, a poor economy and a push toward consolidation to strengthen the company's efficiency are reasons for the closure of this Barnwell facility.

According to Richard Dillard, Director of public affairs for Milliken & Co, some of the markets Barnwell served will be shifted to other facilities in South Carolina.
