Izzy Design to close Alabama plant

Sunday 27 July 2014

Michigan based office furniture maker izzy+ will close a production facility in northern Alabama by next summer to harness greater efficiency.

Production at the Florence, Alabama, plant will be shifted to company’s existing facilities in Middlebury, Indiana, and in Spring Lake, along with some suppliers. The consolidation is expected to take about a year to complete.

"We are investing in a more nimble and focused izzy+,” CEO Kevin Kuske said in a statement. “This requires a careful consolidation of our operations that allows us to be even more efficient and responsive in our commitment to provide our customers with world-class capabilities.”
Kuske said izzy+ plans to sell the Florence plant when the consolidation is complete. There are about 200 office and manufacturing workers at the facility. The company expects to add a yet-to-be-determined number of manufacturing and support positions at other izzy+ facilities.
“We regret the impact this will have on the people of the Florence facility, because they have been an important and well-performing part of our izzy+ family,” Kuske said. “We will be doing everything possible to help them transition to other employment.”
