Negotiations in works for sale of Franklin facility
More than 100 people found themselves out of a job last week, when they were informed that Whitley Products Franklin facility would be closing its doors. With just a day's notice, employees showed up for work on Thursday morning, and were turned away.
Employees first caught wind of the problem Wednesday morning when they received a letter from Whitley's corporate office in West Warsaw, Ind. The letter cited financial difficulties as being the reason for the facility's demise.
