MI Windows and Doors to Close Texas Plant

November 8th, 2010 by DWM Magazine

MI Windows and Doors announced recently that it will idle its Van Alstyne, Texas, window fabrication plant by the end of the year. The company says the plant’s customers will be served from MI’s facility in Carrolton, Texas. Sixty-six employees will be affected.

“Our decision to idle the Van Alstyne facility has been difficult,” says Matt DeSoto, chief operating officer. “Anytime we affect team members and their families by eliminating jobs it comes with much anxiety. The decision is not a reflection of how our team in Van Alstyne has performed, but rather a strategic reallocation of our manufacturing resources.”

  1. (The decision is not a reflection of how our team in Van Alstyne has performed, but rather a strategic reallocation of our manufacturing resources.”)

    THE ABOVE STATEMENT, which was taken from your article is very disturbing. What better resources are there than people? Perhaps pay cuts or other money saving measures could have been considered or shorter work weeks. In any case it always interests me that those who are calling the shots, don’t try other creative measures before doing something like what your company is doing. It not only effects the employees but it also effects all the businesses those employees conduct business with. Plus I am sure your competition will love the news and profit from your cutbacks.
