Some of the one-hundred workers who lost their jobs last month when Voisard Manufacturing closed its Shiloh and Shelby plants, are on their way into new jobs.

Twenty workers turned-out for a job fair Wednesday, involving twenty employers offering jobs the Voisard workers can fill. The three-hour job fair offered the displaced workers every type of help they might need, especially by putting them face-to-face with people ready to put them back to work.

The companies included job placement services, and those who have jobs. And ten-year Voisard supervisor Jane Noblet is eager to get back to work.

Noblet says Voisard officials did not give employees an explanation for why the company closed so suddenly. Voisard Manufacturing employees should contact the Ohio Means Jobs centers in Richland and Crawford Counties for help finding a new job.
