HAMBURG, N.J. (May 20)—Ames Rubber Corp. has completed consolidating production from its Vernon, N.J., plant at other company factories and will liquidate the unit's equipment at a June 12 auction.
The consolidation was part of a corporate-wide lean manufacturing program, according to Timothy D. Marvil, president and CEO. Production of injection molded automotive and defense parts was moved to an Ames plant in Wantage, N.J., and business machine parts were shipped to the Rudnick, Czech Republic, plant of Ames' European partner, Avon Rubber P.L.C., where Ames leases space.
Manufacturing at Vernon actually ceased last year, Marvil said. The 36,000-sq.-ft. building in Vernon, which Ames acquired in 1984, will be sold separately, Marvil said.
