Beaulieu of America has announced it will close its Eufaula, Ala., yarn processing plant, leading to the layoff of 190 of employees.

It said it is shutting the plant in an effort to streamline operations and off-set higher costs of raw materials and transportation.

“Due to reduced sales brought on by the economy plus higher materials costs, we made the decision to consolidate the Eufaula yarn processing capacity to our other facilities that are closer to our carpet mills in Dalton, Ga.,” Beaulieu President and CEO Ralph Boe said.

He said the company appreciates the service by the employees, “and we will work to assist in finding new positions for them, and provide opportunities in other sites as available.”
