WestPoint Stevens Cuts Jobs Production At Lanier Plant

WestPoint Stevens Inc., West Point, Ga., is cutting back operations at its Lanier Plant, Valley, Ala. Approximately 300 associates at the facility, which produces sheeting, will be placed on leave of absence or offered employment at other company facilities.The company said it must realign capacity at Lanier with other WestPoint Stevens plants better equipped to manufacture the sheeting styles currently in demand.

"Lanier Plant is an excellent facility that can possibly be well-used for other purposes, but unfortunately it is equipped to run styles that are no longer in demand," said Robert R. Bobby Lanier, vice president, Bed Products Manufacturing.
