I worked for Rayloc Atlanta 23 years before leaving on disability in 1995. One year later the plant closed and all my friends went there separate ways.

Just before leaving in 1995 my job as a special starter builder went to Morganfield. I fill sorry for all the employees being they spent almost half their life at a job just to see the door slammed in their faces.

My opinion Terry White shut the doors because of the union. The spelling of his first name maybe incorrect.

Good luck with your new life after Rayloc.

I visited the plant in 2004 after the new warehouse. It was huge. I couldn't believe the amount of inventory there. In my opinion there was just too much stuff that was stored and produced and not sold.
