GUILFORD (AP) – The weak economy is claiming more jobs in Maine.

True Textiles says 75 to 90 employees will be laid off Jan. 26 at its Guilford and Newport plants. The company, formerly InterfaceFABRIC Inc., blames poor economic conditions.

True Textiles makes panel fabrics for offices.

Kirk Crisman, True’s senior vice president for human resources, says the layoffs are being posted as permanent because there’s no way of knowing when the economy may improve. Crisman says the company has a callback process in case conditions improve.
