Latex Manufacturing To Resume in North Country
In some good news for the North Country an old family business is coming back to life. NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
Starting in 1931 Neil Tillotson made his fortune manufacturing natural latex products including balloons and later gloves.
That allowed him to purchase the Balsams Grand Resort.
Tillotson died in 2001 and a latex plant located near the resort closed in 2010.
But Tillotson’s son, Rick, purchased the equipment and recently bought a 103,000 square foot building in Colebrook.
He plans to use part of it to make latex products there and hopes to open later this year.
