Lowndes Co. business announces layoffs

October 15, 2002

Valdosta - Nearly forty people in Lowndes County will soon lose their jobs because of a struggling agricultural economy.

Griffin LLC is one of Lowndes County's largest employers, supplying crop protection chemicals to countries all over the world. Company president Rusty Griffin says this restructuring is necessary to remain a strong competitor in the crop protection industry.

"When the farmer doesn't do well, neither do any other agricultural industries, so we're having to do this to keep our business vital," said Griffin.

The layoffs will also effect the Griffin Company's plants in Texas, Columbia and Brazil.
