Forest City, Iowa-based Winnebago Industries Inc. continues to reduce its work force because of the downturn in the motorhome market, according to an Associated Press report.
Sheila Davis, public relations and investor relations director, said the reductions are in the form of layoffs and not filling vacant positions. She didn’t say how many jobs have been cut.
The layoffs are in addition to the 270 jobs that were cut when Winnebago closed its Charles City manufacturing plant on Aug. 1. Two smaller plants in Charles City are still open.
When Winnebago announced the plant closing in June, it said it would monitor sales and adjust its work force accordingly.
The company laid off more than 200 workers and eliminated another 100 jobs by not filling open positions during the first three months of this year.
The company had about 3,000 employees at its plants in Forest City, Charles City and Hampton, before the Charles City plant closed.
