The shutdown of the Mohawk Industries synthetic carpet yarn plant in Fort Oglethorpe will result in 235 layoffs and will cost the city some lost tax revenue, officials said.
The plant announced today that it will close its doors at 365 Patterson Ave. by Nov. 28. Calls to the office were not immediately returned, and officials at Mohawk’s corporate headquarters declined to comment outside of a written statement.
Last week AM 1180 Chattooga Radio News received information regarding layoffs at Mohawk’s Summerville Plant. Mohawk has not officially confirmed those layoffs to the media.
