2023 Top Stories In Review – Hunter Douglas

January 2nd, 2024 by WCBC Radio

One of the events making the list this year of WCBC’s Top News stories involved the closure of the Hunter Douglas plant in Mexico Farms. The closure announcement came in March of 2023.  Ironically, the closure was due to production moving to Mexico, but it meant the loss of over 300 jobs locally.  Hunter Douglas originally came to the county in 1990. The company also shuttered factories in North Carolina and Texas to move work south of the border.
