The article reports that the 161-year old Mount Vernon Mills Inc., which is said to be the oldest continually running textiles mill in the U.S., is closing the Tallassee, Alabama plant where it manufactured greige fabrics for apparel and home textiles. Ned Cochrane, vice president, secretary and general counsel, of Mount Vernon Mills has said the company will remain in these business segments, but is considering dropping some unprofitable customer-specific products. The closing of the 750,000 square-foot plant is expected to take place by mid-September.
