By ohtadmin Randolph Furniture Company May 02, The plant employs people. Ethan Allen will close its year-old furniture manufacturing plant in Randolph June 29, displacing workers. Employees heard the shocking announcement Tuesday as they were gathered together for a plant meeting.

They were given the afternoon off to try to deal with the emotional blow of the surprise announcement. It was not easy. For some, working at Ethan Allen was a family affair.

At least a dozen husband-wife teams were employed there, and one woman noted that the plant employed her husband, son, nephew, and two brothers-in- law. The EA closure comes on the heels of two other manufacturing losses in Randolph. The Branchwood fire three years ago spelled the end for a once-important mill, and the loss of Vermont Sports Apparel formerly Merrimaids caused the loss of manufacturing jobs mainly for women.

It was the second Vermont plant closure for the EA furniture giant in less than a year. A 413 Clothing Company in Island Pond, employingwas shut down last summer.

However, in a brief announcement from corporate headquarters in Danbury, Conn. At a Obulapuram Mining Company Private Limited Website Town Committee meeting Tuesday, it was speculated that high taxes and regulation of business might have been part of the EA decision.

However, Lambert said the EA official Don Garrett told her this week the state has been helpful on several issues of cost-savings. A Herald article in said the EA plant was producing about pieces a day. It appears, he said, that employees will be eligible for 39 weeks Randolph Furniture Company unemployment insurance, rather than 26 weeks. The recent federal job-creation act created a week federally funded benefit period that runs through the end of the calendar year.

The week period for state benefits Randolph Furniture Company run out Dec 31 for EA employees, he said, making them eligible for the federal benefit. The DET-led team also will deal with questions of health insurance, job training, and help from other state programs, he said.

Gold and Lambert both noted that the employment situation in the state, especially the Randolph and White River Areas, is good. You must be logged in to post a comment. Search for: Search Submit Randolph Furniture Company.
