    Moving of El Dorado, Ark. facility.

    Alltrista made a move at the beginning of the
    year to move the El Dorado, Arkansas facility to
    Auburndale, FL. This was not a highly advertised move and I
    believe that Alltrista Corp. is not very happy with
    themselves for combining the El Dorado, AR facility with the
    Alltrista owned Triangle facility in Auburndale. It was a
    move that Alltriata did not put a lot of thought into.
    It seems that the mobile home industry big boys,

    (i.e., Fleetwood, etc.) which the El Dorado facility
    supplied, is not very happy with the quality of work that
    is being performed at the
    Auburndale facility. As
    an Alltrista stock-
    holder I sincerely hope that
    they (Triangle)get
    their act together so this stock
    can get back up--as soon as it does I will sell and
    get away from this loser----and it will lose as long
    as those knuckleheads are making these kinds of
    crazy decisions.

    • I feel you man. I could not agree more. However,
      Triangle has had success in the past on their end. The tub
      business is indeed coming to an end---I am happy to say.
      Now the Auburndale plant can get on with better
      things. Hopefully the Alltrista idiots will keep their
      hands out of the way.

      P.S. The Kevco situation
      is another
      story all together!!!

      And don't
      bet the "pot" on the toilets making money. You know
      as well as I do----Alltrista is not going to make a
      good "buy" decision.
      The Viking plant had potential
      but the Alltrista management was not using their
      heads or listening to reason. Come on bear
      stearns!!!
      Marty, keep your eyes open for new developments and keep
      me informed on what you hear---and I will do the
      same. Later!!

    • the move to Fl was a desparate attempt to save a losing business that was spiraling down while in AR. Nothing wrong with trying to save it, they had to do something I suppose.

      • Actually not spiralling down in AR.
        All
        business from the closed plant in Indiana made a
        profitable org.---Alltrista acquired Triangle----and had to
        consolidate.
        Flipped a coin and AR lost, unfortunately so did the
        company along with my investment. From what I can gather
        AR plant (Viking Industries) was booming until
        Alltrista bought them. Now, they are going to take down a
        great company in Triangle. Auburndale, Fl plant was
        doing excellent until the move--now it is sinking like
        the Titanic. If it were not for the great management
        at the FL facility they would already be gone.
        Hopefully something good will happen and we can recover
        some of our investment. (Please)

      • I was out of the country---they must have had a
        good day. I believe it was plastics industry
        wide.
        I truly hope it will go up and stay
        there----unlikely. I know this company--'aint
        gonna happen!!!! As
        you can see it's back to the gutter. Get with the
        program Alltrista---
        get yourself some of that skilled
        labor from your Arkansas facility before it is too
        late.
