Goodyear-Slow Down

GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Officials at the Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.

plant in Gadsden have announced the plant will be shutting down

production for the third time this year.

According to Communications manager Jackie Brehm Edmondson,

production will cease at 1 p.m. Oct. 26 and resume at 1 a.m. Nov. 2.

She said the move is an attempt to adjust their inventories as a

result of the slow market.

Goodyear's consumer tire plants in Fayetteville, N.C., and Union

City, Tenn., also will be ceasing production for a week at that

time and several other plants have some level of shutdowns.

The Goodyear plant in Gadsden closed for 16 days in August and

early September and also ceased production from Sept. 27 to Oct. 5.
