Leggett & Platt, once the county's largest employer, is down to a skeletal crew and within a few weeks even they will be gone.
“We've got 16 workers left,” Plant Manager Doug Allen said. “They're moving assets and getting ready to close.”
Allen said the plant will “probably be closed by the end of the month.”
The company will keep a small presence in Simpsonville – an engineering staff and design team – for the foreseeable future, he said.
