MUNCY HOMES LAYS OFF 29 EMPLOYEES

Economic conditions led to the layoff of 29 employees last Friday at Muncy Homes Inc., 1567 Route 442 Highway, Muncy, PA.

Michael J. Clementoni, executive vice president, said they have been considering the lay offs for the last three years, but held off until now because he said he does not see a sign of improvement in the foreseeable future.

The 29 employees that were laid off are a mixture of management, supervisory and administrative employees.

Muncy Homes Inc. now employs about 220 people. It has been in business since 1973.

The company has manufactured modular homes under three brand names: Muncy Homes, Superior Builders and Premier Builders. The manufactured modular homes are delivered in 14 states in the northeast.

Haven Homes also shut down their Bellefonte plant last week. I am told by a former employee that it is for good.

I haven't heard this. Does anyone have more information they would like to share?

I heard that things are not going well for Haven since they bought the old Penn Lyon factory and moved their operations. They were a great company. Hope they don't go out.

It is true. I am a builder that knows first hand and also have friends inside the old Haven. Under the leadership of Ken Reinard, directoed by Ed Langley, Haven is no longer going to be building the upscale homes of the past. They do not see the value and only want to build what they they know- ranches, two story and capes. haven has lost all of their quality managers, skilled craftsman and the majority of their builder network. Their Selinsgrove plant is not running now either. This company should not be allowed to be called Haven Homes. They simply are not. They are Penn Lyons.

Is there any way to know for sure if this is true? Some sort of newspaper article, memo, anything? Written proof of this would be great, rather than just hearsay. Not that I don't believe it, but some people may not.
