I still periodically read the thread but with a slightly different user name.
I can tell you shortly after it was mentioned here about the HR Manager, Diane Spilmon, and her lovely past she was terminated from her employment from Conforce. This is why her picture has been removed from the Conforce website. It was also mentioned here about how they do not/did not have a local engineer in the plant trying to get these two machines up and running. Conforce obviously reads the thread as they shortly there after advertised for a local engineer. I cannot verify if they were actually able to hire one since I no longer know anyone still currently working at the plant.
The laid off employees were not called back last month. There were only a few hourly production employees remaining in the plant and a month ago some of those were also laid off. From what I'm told they hope to be recalled "sometime in August."
I do feel that Conforce has a good product with EKO-FLOR and they could probably sell a lot of it. But I'm as dumbfounded as anyone that Conforce can get this far and run into the problem of not being able to mass produce the product. The fact that it's taken this long and they still are not up and running is a good indication that they have more than a hole alignment problem. If I recall correctly, on one of their earnings statements (or what ever its called), Conforce stated they had enough cash to last through 2012. Hopefully in the next 6 months they can get everything worked out, get some orders, and start mass producing EKO-FLOR. Who knows maybe eventually the place will be up and running 24/7 as they had hoped. It would be great for you the investors and great for the local economy.
