Greenville, South Carolina-based Hubbell Lighting, a manufacturer and distributor of indoor and outdoor lighting products, has announced that it is consolidating manufacturing operations and will be permanently closing its manufacturing operations in Newtown, Connecticut which will result in 143 layoffs, a small Burndy facility in Bethel, Connecticut which will result in 54 layoffs, and a manufacturing operation in Hudson Wisconsin which will result in another 54 layoffs. According to a company spokesperson, the work performed at the Newtown facility is being transferred to a Hubble facility in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico and the work performed at Bethel is being transferred to a Hubble facility in Leeds, Alabama. The work being performed in the Hudson facility will be terminated due to the discontinuance of the company’s P2 (Precision-Paragon) brand.
Change is coming. There will always be a tomorrow, no matter how much you may try to ignore it. There are no guarantees in life, or promises for a bright future. Just because something bad hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. No one is guaranteed to wake up tomorrow and still have a job by evening. Are you now wondering, Am I Next?
