Plumerville was very excited to see new business move into their hometown in 2002. Ponderosa Trailers moved in with the intentions to expand their business due to growth over the past few years. Many locals immediately applied for jobs and within 6 months there were over 200 employees. While Ponderosa’s business was initially strong, there were numerous issues that led to the Plumerville factory to close in 2011.
As a result of the closure many people in the Plumerville/Conway area lost their jobs.
