Hart Tools is Closing a Facility in South Carolina

TTI is closing a Hart Tools facility in Gaffney, South Carolina, with a WARN report saying 114 workers will be impacted.

A reader (thank you, Terry) sent in a tip about the closure. Hart Tools products are exclusively available at Walmart.

According to South Carolina’s most recent WARN report, notice was given on 3/1/24, with the layoffs and closure to go into effect on 5/1/24.

(WARN disclosures provide advanced notice for plant closures and mass layoffs.)

The report lists TTI Consumer Power Tools as the company, and specifies that the Cherokee county SC location is a “Hart facility.”

A local news report by WPSA confirms this, quoting the Executive Director for Cherokee Country Development Board as saying “it’s a distribution warehouse, what they distribute there is the Hart brand, you’ll find in Walmart.

The same article says that TTI Consumer Power Tools has been at this location since 2019, which is the year Hart relaunched in the USA as a Walmart-exclusive brand.

I could not find a copy of the WARN notice issued to South Carolina; only a summarizing WARN report is available (PDF for the period ending 3/1/24). Reasons for the closure and potential remedies for affected workers are not yet known.

I reached out to a TTI Consumer Power Tools marketing executive for comment, but have not yet heard back.
