This is what I'm hearing from a couple of people who are still there.No buyer in sight. Should be completely closed by April. Down to around 375 employees now and more going every week.

Only thing I seen was the other day, front page of the Watchman said previous interested buyers to be re-contacted.
Maybe they'll be offered better pkgs? idk

two of the so called previous interested buyers were there wanting to buy equiptment,i believe masco dont want to sale and the only reason the news watchman wrote the story they did , was so the mayor and all of them can say they done everything they could do, so they wont have to take any blame in meetings when all the rest of the business owners in waverly start laying off and shutting there doors because nobody has the money to spend, i would like to see someone buy the place but i really dont think it will happen. i have enjoyed working there,the place has been very good to me for the past 22yrs,but i also was very good to it.

I believe the new governor is applying his power to force the sale, also.

Well I hate to say it though, but if the demand isn't there, it makes no sense to continue to make a product that nobody is buying. Keeping a factory or business open just so the workers have money to spend just isn't feasable, flat out. And I think everyone can agree to that.
So with that said, what business or product, or goods are in demand, where a factory, or business can go in there?
That's the real question.

I think the place is to big for just one company to look at it, i could see maybe spliting the place up...the demand is there, they are still taking orders..out of all the places that they own, mills pride was the only one that they said made money in 2009, they said that they wanted to get out of the low end cabinets, but if your making money why stop,..who knows.

I hope for the sake of this area they do find a buyer. Hardly any jobs in south central OH at all.Did the Watchman say WHO is recontacting the potential buyers? Did it say if Masco had lowered asking price or if the state would make a better offer in terms of tax breaks or something to a buyer to keep it open? If Masco is really trying hard to sell I would be shocked. Workers there I know personally all seem to think Masco does not want to sell for some reason.

Idk buddy, I didn't buy the paper cause it's never worth 75 cents lol. But I'm sure they probably wouldn't say what the intricate workings of the re-negotiations would be. I can tell u one thing tho, it'd be pretty neat if suddenly the nuclear power plant would start building now and employing everyone that's been layed off by this or are just unemployed right now.

So damn sad! We moved away from the area nearly three decades ago and had been hoping to return soon. But, alas there is no work that pays a family supporting wage. Guess that old adage "you can't go home again" is true for a variety of reasons.
