>>Williamsport's Shop-Vac Has New Buyer
(Williamsport, PA) -- After shutting down in September and leaving around four-hundred people without a job, Shop-Vac is announcing they have a new buyer. The company abruptly shut-down with little warning to employees back in September after a sale of the company fell through, but industrial manufacturer GreatStar is taking over. GreatStar President and CEO Gary Duboff says they plan to re-hire laid-off employees and are going to be bigger and better than ever before. However, he emphasized patience as they are starting over and re-hiring people may take a little time.
