    Default picked this up on face book

    I just wanted to let you know that General Foam Plastics is closing at the end of the year. They've currently hired a finance company to help them find another company to purchase their blow molds. Sales and Demand has nothing to do with it. They're doing well as a business. Call the toll free customer service number at 1-855-277-0085. What shall we do?

    Sad news. Does not sound like there's much we can do. It's not a business I'd want to be in.

    They are only closing the Tarboro NC plant. Sounds like the VA plant stays in operation .. unless they don't make them up there. I bet it a Chinese issue. It's possible that they can buy blowmolds from China cheaper than making them here .. just my own thoughts ..
