    • Atlas Roll-Lite garage-door plant will shut
      Susan G. Strother
      of The Sentinel
      Published in The Orlando Sentinel on April 29,

      Atlas Roll-Lite's garage-door plant in south Orlando
      will close by early summer, putting 120 people out of

      The move follows the sale earlier this year of a
      portion of the business that made doors for mini-storage

      Clopay Corp., which owns Atlas, decided it didn't make
      economic sense to operate the remaining "half a plant" in
      Orlando, said Bob Caulk, president of Clopay's building
      products company in Cincinnati.

      The employees will
      receive severance based on length of service, said Ed
      Volk, Clopay's vice president of human resources. Some
      have been at the plant for 20

      Manufacturing workers earn $7 to $14 an hour, Volk said, though
      some salaried workers earn as much as $50,000 a year.
      No more than 10 employees will be offered jobs at
      other plants.

      The operation is expected to
      remain open until at least June 1. Clopay plants in
      Ohio, Wisconsin and Arizona will handle the remaining

      Clopay bought the plant in 1995 from MascoTech Inc.
      Since then, Caulk said, sales of residential garage
      doors have done well, but the mini-storage side of the
      business has suffered.

      Clopay found it difficult to
      compete in a market crowded with competitors. It sold the
      mini-storage business in March to a joint venture of U.S. Door
      in Ocoee and Consolidated Services of Columbia,

      About 80 employees joined U.S. Door, Caulk said. Before
      the sale, the plant had annual revenue of about $60

      Clopay rents its warehouses in south Orlando and is
      looking for a tenant to assume its lease.

      company still will employ 65 in the Orlando area in its
      distribution and installation offices. Clopay

    • I posted a message a short time ago and said that
      it was time for the board of director's to do their
      duty and get rid of management.

      Guess what?
      Yahoo stripped my message off the board!!! It looks
      like GFF management does not like to be

      With their inflated compensation and the company's
      poisen pill, these guys don't have to worry about
      increasing the company's value. They are along for the ride
      and everybody else is out of luck.

      By the way,
      did you see where the company's employee pension plan
      was a large holder in company stock a year ago, but
      not any longer. It looks like the trustees of the
      plan found value elsewhere.

    • The problems of Clopay Building Products are
      many-there is a total lack of leadership and vision. The
      executive management lacks backbone and decisiveness.

      Advice to top management comes from a core group of
      individuals that are insubstantial and non-credible in terms
      of their background and

      Management has been suckered time and time again by
      "street-wise" sharks who show substantially better business
      acumen than the boys in the boardroom who have Ivy
