Whiting Mfg. shuts its doors
February 23, 2004,
Whiting Manufacturing is closing down its manufacturing operations, leaving 180 employees out of work in 60 days' time.
"We are working with our customers and suppliers to fulfill our commitments," said president and CEO Dick Whiting. "Our production operation is efficient, but we can't really compete with the imports on price."
Except for the importation of sheets, the company has always made its bedding products domestically. Jerry Momper, vice president of sales, will coordinate the wind down of business and inventories.
