At one time, Reliable Corporation based in Geneva employed 800. We're being told by those who work there that fellow employees have been receiving their lay-off notices.
Reliable Corporation has been manufacturing pre-fabricated metal products for more than 50 years. Over recent days, News 4 has received several calls from those who’ve been laid-off.
They haven't been told if it's temporary, or if it's a permanent job loss. In one correspondence, we've learned that those who've been laid off will meet with a delegation of company and state officials early next month in Geneva. Following the loss of a body-armor company late last year, Geneva Mayor Wynnton Melton says any loss of jobs for his city is tragic.
News 4 was unsuccessful in getting a statement from reliable officials in Geneva. In the 1990's, Geneva lost more than 2,000 textile jobs as they went to overseas' countries.
At this time, we're not being told if the layoffs are due to the national recession. We will continue to follow this story as details become available.
