ROCKY MOUNT State and local officials are working swiftly to assist former employees of Excel Homes of Virginia, or Mod-U-Kraf, who learned they were out of a job Monday because the company was shutting down.

Just one day after employees were asked to go to the facility at the Franklin County-Rocky Mount Industrial Park to collect their belongings, The Franklin Center for Advanced Learning and Enterprise hosted a job fair.

The closing cost at least 150 Rocky Mount workers their jobs, according to the general operations manager with Excel Homes of Virginia.

Executive Director Kathy Hodges said she immediately began organizing the job fair when she heard the news just before 5 p.m. Friday. Hodges said she knew she needed to move quickly, and opted to hold the fair on Tuesday rather than later in the week as she originally planned.
