My wife and I have worked at the New Paris Merchants Metals for almost 3 years. It is sad they've had to close but I understand why. The company has always treated my family and I well. When I had to have hip replacement and my son passed away, the company helped financially and supported us emotionally. Now they've helped one last time. We're both being paid fully until the end of March and then we'll both receive a lump severance package. I will miss my work family and the company but I have no hard feelings. Thank you...
