A Washington County manufacturer of ready-to-assemble furniture is shutting down, putting about 100 employees out of work, a company official said Friday.
Trendlines Inc. is in the process of liquidating assets at its 100,000-square-foot warehouse on Governor Lane Boulevard near Williamsport, where production has been halted for at least a month, said company president Terry Thompson.
Thompson said about $4 million in company debt, not poor sales, were the reason for Trendlines' demise.
"We were going great guns. We were expanding and doing very, very well," he said.
Thompson said he was "in the process" of notifying employees of the closure.
He said he did not know whether the company was subject to the federal plant-closing law, which requires a business of at least 100 employees to post 60-days notice to employees before closing its doors.
