35 Bangor Employees to Lose Their Jobs

The facility at 1 Milk Street in Bangor has been producing dairy products since 1902, that will change gradually over the next two months and end an era in January of next year as Garelick Farms ceases production.

Dean Foods of Dallas Texas, the parent company of Garelick Farms recently informed thirty five employees at the “fluid milk” production facility just off Hildreth Street that they will be losing their jobs.  Thirty eight other employees there in charge of distribution will continue, thankfully.  According to a story in today’s Bangor Daily News, a company spokesman explained that Dean Foods works in a highly competitive marketplace and that the company would consolidate production to it’s three other production facilities in Massachusetts and New York.

Garelick Farms became involved back in 1994 when it purchased the facility, Suiza which went on to become Dean Foods purchased Garelick in 1997.  No reason has been given as to why production will cease in Bangor and not at the other three locations.

The Maine Department of Labor said that it would send along its “Rapid Response” team to assist those who will be let go in finding another job.  We wish those affected the best and will be thinking of them as we head into the holidays.
