Window blind plant in Memphis closed by investors

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Window blind maker Dalphis has closed its plant in Memphis, putting about 75 people out of work.

The Commercial Appeal reported the closing last week came about four weeks after Dalphis came out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Company President Charles Duffley said an investment group that bought Dalphis decided to liquidate the business because it wasn't meeting expectations.

The plant manufactured window treatments such as Venetian and motorized blinds and plantation shutters for the home-improvement industry.

Duffley and CEO Benjamin D. Morris were among those being laid off. Employees were being paid through last Friday.

A spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development said the department would meet with affected workers.
