Just so you know. Gecom wants to be the best in class, well the only way that suck ass company can be the best is to buy up the competition and close them. It is too bad that they dont care enough about their associates, but to use them up and kick them to the curb. Hope they end up like the one's they have crushed, UNEMPLOYED.

More Clark County workers will be out of a job soon, after GECOM announced it would lay off 150 workers at its Winchester plant.
The plant, which manufactures door latches, handles and trunk locks and employs 168 people, sent a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) letter to Mayor Ed Burtner last week saying it would lay off the workers, beginning March 30.
In its Wednesday edition, the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that the plant would be closing its doors permanently and moving its operation to Frankfort or Greensburg, Ind., but Burtner said his office has not been notified that the plant is closing.
“We have not received any word from them that they are closing and moving the plant,” the mayor said.“In the WARN letter we received, it specifically stated that GECOM anticipates that the layoffs will be permanent but the entire facility will not close.”
No one answered the phone at the GECOM facility in Winchester, and calls to its corporate headquarters had not been returned at press time.
Todd Denham, director of economic development for the Winchester/Clark County Industrial Authority, said he had no knowledge of the closing, and he too was trying to reach GECOM officials.
“I have not heard anything definitive that they were closing. I talked to them about a week and a half ago, and at that time I was told that they plan on letting about 150 employees go,” Denham said.“I’ve got a call into GECOM corporate office, and I would like to get confirmation myself. Things change so quickly, and sometimes local management doesn’t know before something like this happens, so in a week
and a half things could have changed.”
The layoffs mean that more than 450 automotive industry jobs will be lost in Clark County in the next couple of months.
Niles America Wintech earlier announced it would be cutting its workforce down from 224 employees to 50, and Ainak Inc. said it would be reducing its employees from 123 to 33.

I was crushed when I lost my job after 12 years. OHI was a good company until Gecom took over. I have NEVER been treated like they treat their employees. It is really quite sad. We worked really hard just to lose our job in the end. I know that there are alot of people that are losing their job now days. But everyone you talk to that lost their job did some kind of severance pay or something..shit we didn't get nothing. I am sad that I lost my job. But at least I can start over fresh and hopefully work for a company that actually cares for their employees. GECOM SUCKS!
