|The consolidation of Jeffco's operations into that of Collins has now been completed. The bowl and dryer operations were relocated to Cookeville, TN and consolidated into Collins operations on July 1, 2011. This phase was directed by Jeffco's new general manager.
The chair and cabinet operations were earlier consolidated on November 1, 2010 and Jeffco's transition to the Collins computer system was completed on February 1, 2011.
The result of these consolidations is that all Jeffco product is now manufactured and/or inventoried by Collins in Tennessee, all Jeffco orders are filled by Collins, and all Jeffco operations in North Carolina have been completely discontinued.
These consolidations and personnel changes are all good business decisions that avoid confusion and duplication, reduce operating costs, and position Jeffco for improvements in service, quality, and value.
