Vicksburg Flooring Plant To Close Idling 93 Workers

VICKSBURG, MS (Ben Caxton) — Armstrong Flooring told employees Monday the Vicksburg Plant will be closing its doors. A company press release said they are also closing a plant in Jackson, Tennessee. The moves will save Armstrong between $8M and $10M dollars annually, and idle 93 workers in Vicksburg. This isn’t the first time the plant has closed since it was purchased by Armstrong from Capella Wood Floors in 2006. The plant was closed in January of 2009 laying off 124 workers but reopened again in April of the following year. The Vicksburg plant produced veneer and plywood that is used to manufacture engineered wood floors at an Armstrong plant in Somerset, Kentucky.
