I was working at the Swedesboro (NJ) Compaq plant when it closed in 2002. The plant's work-load was split between the Charlotte-area HP plant & the Indianapolis Compaq plant. Some of us were offered positios in NC, but it was 30 days to report,so most of us had to turn it down. I have several possibilities lined-up, but I fgure you can never have too many.

I've looked & can't find the plant listed. Someone told me it's in Ranlo. Does anyone know if it's still operatioal?

I didn't know there was an HP plant anywhere near Charlotte. I haven't been thru Ranlo in a while.

OK,TY.

I know that it was definitely there in 2002, since several of us were offered jobs there.

I know someone who is local who swears that the plant is still there & in Ranlo, in a buildng that used to be a mill. I can't find anything on it. I checked the HP website & several other options.
