Company expansion diminishes impact of O'Sullivan South Boston closing

The community of South Boston, Va., suffered a long-expected hit today when O'Sullivan Industries officials announced they would close the plant by the end of the calendar year, causing 200 to lose their jobs.
The impact was slightly diminished, however, by an announcement earlier in the week that ABB, Inc., plans to expand its operation in Halifax County and add 127 jobs, with an average salary of $38,462, according to the South Boston Gazette-Virginian.
