    Shutdown to eliminate 240 jobs
    TRURO, N.S. —
    
    One of Truro`s oldest operating manufacturers is planning to move its operations to the United States, eliminating approximately 240 jobs in the process.
    
    “It was a little bit of a kick in the gut,” Truro Mayor Bill Mills said, of his reaction to receiving the “shocking” news in a phone call Tuesday afternoon that the Tarkett North America (formerly named Crossley Karastan and then Tandus Centiva) carpet plant is shutting down. “That`s not quite the kind of news we were looking for today.”Company employees were also informed of the planned shutdown Tuesday afternoon.
    
    “Earlier today, we informed our employees that Tarkett North America will be closing our manufacturing plant in Truro, Nova Scotia, effective July 16, 2019,” the company said, in an email to stakeholders, including both the Town of Truro and the County of Colchester.
    
    “As one of our valued stakeholders, we wanted to share that this was not an easy decision and it is not a reflection of the caliber of work done by our Truro team. A business decision has been made and our manufacturing operations will be relocating to Dalton, Georgia. Operations in Truro will continue for approximately three months.
    
    The carpet factory has been in operation in Truro since 1964.
    
    Colchester Mayor Christine Blair also expressed surprise and concern about the announcement.
    
    “That`s a huge, huge blow to this area,” she said.
    
    Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River MLA Lenore Zann said she was completely taken aback by the news, which is obviously a huge blow to the employees who will soon be out of a job.
    
    “This is a devastating loss for those who work at the factory, their loved ones, and the wider community," she said, in a news release. "This company is one of the largest employers in Truro and having over 240 people faced with unemployment as of this summer is difficult to imagine.
    
    "This factory has provided good jobs for residents of Truro for decades and having them pull up shop like this is extremely disappointing," she continued. "My heart goes out to the employees and their families. The (Stephen) McNeil government needs to be here with us in Truro making sure that the employees have the transition support they need.”
    
    A statement from the company, issued through the National Consulting Group, said while it understands the decision will impact many lives, both locally and across the province, the plan is to work through the transition period to ensure its employees receive “the care and support they require at this difficult time."
    
    “We are proud of what we have accomplished together,” the statement said. “Truro is home to many of us and, while we are closing a significant chapter, we look forward to seeing what lies ahead for our community.
    
    Despite, the alarming aspect of the news, Mills said he was taking the "high road" on the issue and is trying to remain optimistic in the chance that something constructive will develop in response to the shutdown.
    
    "As shocking as it is, I feel there will be some opportunities present themselves," he said.
    
    On one hand, Mills said, he believes there are local manufacturers who are looking for skilled workers while the carpet facility itself could provide new opportunities once it becomes vacant.
    
    "I feel for the workers and right now it may feel like the bottom has dropped out," he said. "The job losses are quite substantial (but) I`m optimistic we are going to bounce back from this."
