Day & Zimmermann, the century-old, family-owned provider of construction & engineering, staffing and defense solutions for leading corporations and governments around the world, today announced it will consolidate operations at its Camden, Arkansas facility into the existing Lone Star facility in Texarkana, Texas. The decrease in demand and contract work resulting from the defense budget downturn is the driving force behind the consolidation. The Camden facility will be maintained for future opportunities.
“This is an extremely difficult decision for our company, but a necessary one to ensure that we maintain capabilities for our customers and remain competitive across our entire product portfolio,” said Michael Yoh, President of Munitions & Government at Day & Zimmermann. “If demands change moving forward, our Camden facility will be ready and able to take on new contracts and production projects. In the meantime, we are supporting our employees and ensure they are fully informed throughout this process. ”
“We recognize how this will affect the lives of the highly skilled men and women who work here, so we will do everything possible to assist our employees, their families and the community through this difficult transition,” said Tom Rudy, Vice President & General Manager at Day & Zimmermann Munitions.
The Camden facility currently has 36 employees. Day & Zimmermann is providing assistance and ongoing support to employees during this difficult time.
