MASON CITY – Changes have been made at the Curries door plant this week, sources tell NIT.

NIT was told on Tuesday that long-time Curries executive Jerry N. Currie, the great-grandson of Curries founder Cory Currie, cleaned out his desk at the plant that day and has either left the company or will now be “working from home”.  He has been with the company since 1967, according to the company website.

A call to the Curries human resources department was made Wednesday morning for confirmation.  The woman on the phone seemed to express surprise that NIT knew of the development, but she would neither confirm nor deny the report.  She indicated she would call the NIT newsroom back with answers.

UPDATE: A spokesperson from the Curries door plant called the NIT newsroom just after noon and said the Mr. Currie has assumed the position of Vice Chairman. The spokesperson refused to comment on whether Mr. Currie still had an office or a desk in the plant.

A source who works at the plant told NIT the Assa Abloy, the parent company of Curries, has “shown signs of ruthlessness.  I would not trust Assa Abloy very much.”

Another source indicated that the company is suffering financial issues, and hat was backed up by the source working at the plant, who said an “aging workforce, high pay” and other factors were forcing the company’s hand.

Curries is one of the largest employers in Mason City.

More on this developing story as information becomes available.
