Factory Closes at Tumut

31 December 1953 The West Wyalong Advocate

The Dyomee factory, in O'Brien's Hall, Tumut, closed down permanently last week, after being in operation for the past seven' years.

During that period up to 42 girls had been employed, and at the present time there are 26 girls employed.

Mr. Gus Riva has been man- ager of the factory during the whole period of its operation.

The factory has 50 machines installed. Wages paid to employees have averaged 200 per week.    

The machinery will be re- moved to a new establishment which is being set up at South Strathfield.  

The present Tumut staff have been offered jobs in the new factory and the proposition is being considered by at least 10 of the girls.
