Schumer Announcing His Support for Olean Tile Company
Tuesday, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer personally called Dal-Tile President John C. Turner, Jr. to urge that the company work to keep its plant in Olean, NY open. Staying open wouldsave 174 jobs in Cattaraugus County and potentially add additional jobs during the tile company’s reorganization. Schumer says he’ll be taking action after learning that the company is currently evaluating their Olean plant as part of a necessary reorganization. Schumer says that the plant in Olean is part of the life blood of the region, and that he will fight tooth and nail to save these jobs and bring more work to western New York.
