I feel like the two people that was suppose looking out for the empolees at the Archer Creek and New River plant were only trying to save the plant in Columbus plant becase that is home state of the S Lakes and that other dummy Lee people like this is the reason this company lost all the big contracts closing the lower basin the oldest foundry and the Radford shell leaving big customer like Ford,Caterpillar,leaving the worker with no life insurance or health care over the years they just waste money buying big Jets paying big saleries to key people and when things got bad that ran with very few employees and put twice the workthey would not listen the employees for there adviceon how to save money we were not smart enough until thing got out of hand then thet started doing what he already told them years ago

Nothing like high paid ex- executives walking away after puking up a compnay. No pain for Mr. Doddridge and his $2 million imported teak yacht! WOW..... FYI for the folks that had anything that may have had some type of retirement plan (ie; Ganton technologies Salaried Retirment), there Texas office has dumped it off onto the PBGC as so many other discarded failures on their behalf.

I worked for Intermet's Archer Creek, Foundry in Campbell County Virginia for 36 years. Just four years from retirement. With no job expereance other than foundry work; I have to find employment with another company. I've been looking for employment since January 1, and so far no bites.
I have heard rumors that the Mount Athos Archer Creek foundry has been sold and will re-open in April. Could anyone verify this rumor, if so contact me at <[email protected]>
Thank you
