CHF Industries clarifies Fall River plant status  

New York -- CHF Industries has issued notice that it will close the curtain manufacturing portion of its Fall River, Mass., plant by the end of March. The move affects about 90 employees.

Another 100-plus people will remain on the job in Fall River, which serves as headquarters for CHF's quality management program and curtain customer service center as well as senior managers overseeing manufacturing and logics for curtains. The facility also remains CHF's primary curtain distribution center in the United States.

"The raw materials that were used in that facility [for manufacturing] are no longer available in the United States," said Frank Foley, ceo.

Foley said the company remains financially healthy and he assumes recent rumors to the contrary were spawned by the manufacturing shutdown notice.
