Caye closing plant, 600 out of work
NEW ALBANY — Caye Home Furnishings is closing its plant in New Albany within the next 60 days, putting 600 people out of work.
The closing of the plant marks the end of an era of sorts.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that at one time, the facility was the largest upholstered furniture manufacturing plant in the world.
Caye Upholstery LLC acquired the Stratford Co. in 2002. It was the Stratford name that Morris Futorian began producing furniture in New Albany in 1948.
