Dear Sirs
I believe that the facts in your article are a bit misleading:

On March 6th of this year approximatly 25 percent of the personnel at the Collins & Aikman Engineering Center were given their "walking papers", the majority of which were over the age of 40.
This facility services ALL of the other facility's tooling and Design needs as well as sample developement, makeing it a vital part of the company.
It is interesting to note that your article mentions:

"The company has 450 employees in Albemarle. Its N.C. facilities in Old Fort and Montgomery County also are unaffected by the layoffs."
In my opinion 25 percent DOES have a significant effect !
Also I might add that these folks were dismissed WITHOUT a severance package which the other facilities are being offered.
It just seems to me that Collins & Aikman is playing its old game of "everything is comeing up Roses" when in fact its only spreading "fertilizer".

Tell me when this thread is updated:
