Manchin Statement on Closing of Mohawk Industries Flooring Plant in Holden

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today released the following statement on the closing of Mohawk Industries flooring plant in Holden, affecting Logan and Mingo communities.

“I am very disappointed by the announcement of Mohawk Industries’ decision to close its flooring plant in Holden, leaving 111 residents without employment in Logan and Mingo Counties. This decision affects the livelihood of West Virginians who count on these jobs to take care of their families and my prayers are with these workers, their families and their communities. I will work with state and federal agencies to assist these workers in any and every way I can. Most importantly, I urge Mohawk Industries to keep the local community and its workforce in mind and to do everything it can to help the employees and their families affected by this consolidation.”
