FiestaWare employees return to the pottery


NEWELL - A boost in orders for FiestaWare has led The Homer Laughlin China Company to rehire all of its formerly laid off employees.

According to company President Joe Wells III, the increase in demand for FiestaWare is typical for this time of year because of the comingholidays.

"These are seasonal orders and the holidays are coming," Wells said.

Approximately50 Homer Laughlin employees were laid off over the course of the past year because of the slow economy, Wells said.

Of those 50, only a few have chosen not to return to the company in the past three weeks.

"Those people have all returned except for a couple who only want to return to a specific job, and that particular job hasn't reopened," Wells said.

Homer Laughlin has also hired a large group of new employees to contend with the increased orders.

"Wehave hired about 100 new people in the last 45 days," Wells said."We're in the process of training the (new) people that we've hired."
