Hercules reduces Oxford workforce.

Hercules Reduces Oxfor Workforce

The Absorbent & Textile Products Group of Hercules, Wilmington, DE, announced in late September that it will be reducing the workforce among salaried and wage roll employees at its Oxford, GA polypropylene fiber plant. The reduction, which will affect about 250 employees, is scheduled to begin this month and conclude in February. The primary reason given for the cutback is the sale of Hercules' polypropylene carpet fiber business in 1988; a three year contract to continue supplying the purchaser had continued but is scheduled to expire in February, 1992.
