it's so funny because for years people who are familiar with Fortis have predicted the shut down of this awful place. And now it's finally going down! But they have us working seven days a week right now. So you know there were not going to let us go easy. They want to work the dog crap out of us first. Meanwhile you don't see Donna's ugly ass on the weekends. Even though everyone else is working seven days. Oh yeah and you don't see Kelly's dike ass either. Man is she evil. It's been told that she has been married seven times! WTF! Bitch why can't you stay married. Just come out the closet already!! What's so great about this whole thing is the operators will not have a hard time finding a job. But management is going to suffer after it's all said and done. Where else are they going to be able to work where they can walk around and get paid with no skill or knowledge as to what the hell there doing. Except try to make there miserable selfs feel better by making the operators slave for penny's!And that goes for the lead operators to! They are so overpaid and under worked it's ridiculous! I thought LEAD OPERATOR meant set an example for the other operators, you know make sure the have every thing they need! But no, obviously it means kiss ass, try to screw every man in the plant, walk around all night trying to look important. I better stop now because I could go on forever about this GOD awful place. All I know is after years of screwing good hard workers over, they are finally getting what has been coming to them for a long time!:)

Yes, "no suprised", Fortis is officialy closed. I will not miss that place. All they ever cared about is greed at the cost of quality and the operators. It was the worst place I have every worked. The one thing I will miss is the people I worked with. They were simply awesome. They took a very difficult and evil place and made it bearable.

I will miss them dearly.

Fortis did not go out of business or run out of money. They shut down U.S. factories and at the same time purchased 2 separate factories in Mexico. Hooray for free market economics!
Both the Mexican plants did close. Actually they are not controlled by the investment group they were put into receivership.

Only 2 plants left - both US. Mexico plants closed a couple weeks before PB was announced. Bad deal all the way around as hundreds lost their jobs.

I Foolishly Thought "Maybe We Can Turn This B*tch Around" We Were A Great Team. We Were Like The Globe Trotters. Many People Have Said They Never Worked In A Place Like That, And Hope They Never See Another Place Like That. They Kept The Air Off When It Was 105 To Save Money, Thats How Much They Cared About Us. I'm Glad To See It Go. The Mold Techs, Team Leads, Material Handlers, Supervisors, And Operators Were Great Though!

I worked at the Carlyle, IL plant. I will miss the job. I loved it there and I enjoyed the hours and getting $10.30hr. Jobs are hard to find here.
I seen a mention of the Mexico plants but we had MANY shipments from their company and we had to re-work it. Most of the time it wasn't dirty but foreign objects in the part.
I hope G.E. is a better company. Oh, and Fortis had no money. Our power nearly was shut off, our foreman had to sweet talk them out of it. We had no toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning agents. machines leaking oil constantly, running multiple machines and what I hated was being in the very back and working through my breaks and lunch because the shift leaders would forget we were in the out building.
