It has enjoyed a quarter century of prosperity, employing 5,600 workers. Its decline, which began in the mid-1980s with problems of equipment deterioration, will intensify in the 1990s with Over-stocking of production due to declining quality and competition from imported products; It will lose at every stage a thousand jobs through cuts, voluntary departures and retirements.
