This is just another in the line of manufacturers that have left New York State, closing plants and eliminating jobs. Others include Eastman Kodak( single use cameras and now 35mm film production), Xerox, Valeo( will be down from 2,500 to 500 in rochester),synbiotics, Nestles, CVC products,, Lender's Bagel bakery......i could go on. Unfortunately, state and federal government haven't figured out where these workers are going to find equivalent jobs. And the loss of these jobs keeps having a ripple effect throughout the region.
It may be a trend to go overseas, but no one has figured out how people are going to buy these products when they don't have jobs.
