Tifton -- The shut down one of it's two plants will put 228 employees out of work. Shaw industries has two plants in Tift County, along Southwell Boulevard.    

The company plans to shut the doors of its synthetic carpet yarn spinning facility in sixty days. The company's manufacturing plant across the street will remain open.

Shaw is the second major employer in the Tifton area to announce a closing. Avondale Mills also closed operations of its Tifton plant, leaving eighty-nine people without jobs.

Members from the Georgia Department of Labor are meeting with Shaw Industries management to discuss options for those losing their jobs.
