ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Fujifilm Processing in Tifton is closed its doors Monday. The plant's closure puts 99 more people out of work in a community hit hard by job losses.

Right now there are just a few members of management still at the plant.

A statement from the company blames the closure on the switch from traditional photography to digital cameras. Company officials said it was in no way a reflection of the performance of the associates or management of the facility.

Fujifilm Processing has been in Tifton for 20 years. The Tifton area has lost about 12-hundred jobs over the last year.
