WOODFIN, NC (AP) -- A western North Carolina company that makes parachutes and other supplies for the military is laying off 68 workers by the end of the year. Mills Manufacturing president John Oswald says the company has several large government contracts that are ending. The plant in Woodfin has employed 180 workers. Oswald says if more contracts come in, the laid-off workers could be recalled. He says the company has exported its products to more than 65 counties. (Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
