I can see moving to NH, but why Chelmsford? Unless of course they already had a facility there.
But don't fret MA residents, all these layoffs are not a big deal, keep things exactly how they are, Deval will take care of it.

seems to me that, after much "downsizing," you would have excess capacity in your physical plant.... they, like the economy, are shrinking

is an act of consolidation, I'd say

Maybe they'll turn it into a casino! NOT.
Congratulations to the exec's for keeping the business in the US. I'm sure at least some of the employees will relocate to NH. Smart move.

Leaving Lowell to Chemlsford, because Lowell having higher tax than Chemlsford. The Chelmsford invited business to the city and soon will be employee to move in Chemlsford. Lowell city did not realized how much they really waste money on extra employee and LPD. 20% water rate increase will help Lowell.

Don't fret about the building. Marty will somehow find a way to get it for pennies on the dollar. Just remember, UMASS Lowell pays no real estate taxes to the City. But look at the services they receive for free. The streets are paved, plowed, sanded for $0. The Fire Dept answers numerous calls on a daily basis for $0. The Police answer calls when the "Campus Cops" can't handle their problems. Wake up folks, we don't need UMASS Lowell running the city.

Well Maybe if the owner of the building is in a nursing home,
ST HILARE, can have him sign the building over to him.

What did Bernie do to encourage them to stay? Why does he get a raise for losing businesses?
