It's not true.

It's Not True

It seems there's a common variety (i.e. untrue) rumor going around that Conestoga Wood Specialties at Jacksonville will close and move production to its newer Mountain View plant.

"That's not true," says the plant manager, Tom Misenheimer, who has heard the rumor before. "Things are a little slow right now. I think that's where it's coming from."

The plant, which makes hardwood kitchen cabinets and drawer fronts, has 70 employees, down from a high of about 130.

"We're hoping to recall some people shortly," Misenheimer says.

Conestoga has been in Jacksonville since 1983. The Mountain View plant, a "rough mill" where wood is processed, is 3 years old and is not set up for finishing products.

The plants are owned by a Pennsylvania company of the same name.
