March 21-- The VNS Corporation in Vidalia is merging some of its product distribution centers.
Company President Gary Campbell says the Vidalia operation on McIntosh Street will be moved and merged with the company's door manufacturing plant in Ailey. The merger will result in the loss of about four jobs, Campbell estimates.
He says the same sales staff will also serve customers with deliveries from distribution stores in Dublin and Rincon. The change takes effect April 1.
VNS Corporation was founded as Vidalia Naval Stores in 1946 with its roots in the turpentine business. Today it's a regional building products and construction services company with six divisions.
According to Campbell, "We have experienced profitable growth in our manufacturing, multi-family and construction services sector. This move will allow us to increase our resources in these areas while continuing to serve our single family markets."
