A steel production company in Eugene, Ore., is looking to hire workers laid off by Winnebago Industries Inc. in Junction City, according to a report by KEZI.

“This is an opportunity for us to help the local economy and add some talented people to our team,” said Mohawk Metal owner Tony Bloom. “Winnebago employees are well-trained and have skills very similar to what we need at Mohawk.”

The company said it’s currently involved in projects including a local stadium in Eugene and Rainer Tower, a 58-story skyscraper in downtown Seattle.

Last month, Winnebago announced it’s eliminating approximately 220 jobs from its local factory.
