Siemens in Hutchinson announces temporary layoffs
The company says the business volume through the 2018 fiscal year does not support the current employee levels.
“We understand it’s not a plant layoff, it’s a reduction in force on a temporary basis,” says Hutchinson Mayor Jon Daveline.
The 300,000 sq. ft. plant opened in 2010.
Workers assemble a wind turbine part called the nacelles, which sits atop the wind tower.
