HELMET FACTORY CLOSES ITS DOORS PERMANENTLY

PRO-USA closed its doors last week, laying off the remainder of its workforce. Nov. 4 was the day the doors closed for most of the last 16 workers. The workers at the company had apparently been finishing some orders that they had started a few months ago.

Raw materials and other items at the plant began to be shipped out a couple of months ago, according to former employees.

A year ago there were nearly 100 employees at the plant. In January there was a big lay off, with the work force going down to about 25 people.

During the summer the work force varied with as few as 15 people employed at times. Other times there were about 25 employees. Steve Gillmore, who had worked with the plant for about 22 years was laid off several months ago.

Two weeks before the doors closed, employees, responding to rumors in the community, demanded to know if the plant was really closing. They were then told that the plant would close Nov. 4.
