Adel - A South Georgia business is closing and leaving dozens of people jobless.

Elberta Crate and Box Company in Adel will stop production at the end of April. Seventy-four people work at the plant, and some of them will be transferred to other plants the company owns in Bainbridge, North Carolina, or South Florida.

The owners say they aren't getting enough business, and they want to consolidate their locations.

"It's a huge blow to us, this town is really growing and to have something like this happen is devastating," said Kerry Waldron, Cook Economic Developer. "We will immediately begin to work with the employees, try to place them in another job, and help them transition through this time."

The business was purchased from Tally-Corbitt Box Company last February.
