Russell Yarn Consolidates Alexander City Operations

Russell Yarn, a division of Atlanta-based Russell Corp., announced that it is consolidating its Alexander City, Ala., yarn operations into two facilities. Earlier this year, Russell combined its three Alexander City plants into one operation with one manager, but continued to operate in three separate buildings.It is now closing what was known as Plant Number 4 and is combining the workforce into the two remaining facilities. There will be approximately 90 fewer jobs in the remaining operation.Its never easy to make these decisions, but this consolidation will help create a more efficient operation by moving us from three facilities to only two in Alexander City, said Tommy Johnson, president and CEO. We have made the investment in our lower-cost operations to increase their manufacturing capacity so that we can produce the yarn we need without Plant Number 4. Overall, these changes will give us a more cost-effective manufacturing environment with better use of our equipment and employees.
