The article announces the plan of Henredon Furniture Industries company to shut down its 1 million-square-foot case goods plant at the end of 2007 in Morganton, North Carolina.

Furniture Brands International Inc. president Tom Foy said that certain case goods will be continued, but in a smaller facility and that most of the products made in the plant will be sourced offshore.
