Mohawk Industries announced this week that they will be cutting jobs and hours for remaining employees at their plant in Lyerly.

According to the Summerville News the plant will be “transitioning its Lyerly manufacturing from four rotating 12-hour shifts to three 8-hour shifts.”

They added that the shift reconfiguration will initially reduce the number of positions needed to operate the plant.

Mohawk said, “As consumer preferences in flooring evolve, Mohawk aligns its resources to meet demand and ensure the efficient and timely delivery of innovative goods to market. To help accomplish this, Mohawk has invested millions of dollars and created hundreds of jobs at the company’s state-of-the-art Summerville facility, where its patented Continuum polyester fiber is produced. The company also is transitioning its Lyerly manufacturing from four rotating 12-hour shifts to three 8-hour shifts. This shift reconfiguration will initially reduce the number of positions needed to operate the Lyerly plant. During the transition, HR will work with affected individuals to identify internal opportunities for them close to their homes at growing Mohawk facilities in northwest Georgia.”
