Enterprise Aluminum Corp., which came to Oneonta ten years ago as the result of a massive drive by area personnel, civic and otherwise, will end its days sometime next week as an employer in the Oneonta area.
The remaining employees, numbering approximately 12, will see their jobs terminated as the final items of inventory and equipment are shipped out in the next few days by truck or rail.
Currently two clerical workers are still employed in the office; four employees are still engaged in packaging and shipping to customers the remains of the inventory and “five or six” men are packaging and shipping out the tools and dies to other Enterprise establishments either in the South or at Massillon, Ohio, head office of the firm.
The wind up of the Enterprise operation, which was hinted at by company spokesmen early this spring, and then made final in early summer, comes very closely in line with a time schedule reported weeks ago by Plant Superintendent Walker Ritter.
