Callaway Drags Its Balls To China

by The Editors on May 30, 2008

Carlsbad based Callaway Golf has announced that they are closing their 70,000-square-foot golfball manufacturing facility in Gloversville, NY on July 31 and laying off 120 workers as a way of taking “advantage of lower manufacturing and shipping costs in China,” according to a story in the Triangle Business Journal.

We have an obligation to our shareholders and employees to run as efficiently as possible,” said Michele Szynal, a Callaway spokeswoman. “This obviously makes financial sense for us.”

We think Michele meant a responsibility to Callaway’s remaining employees, as they don’t seem too bothered by cutting 120.
