Grede Foundry laying off 77 from Wis. plant

BERLIN, Wis. (AP) — Grede Foundry in Berlin is laying off 77 workers as of July 1, representing 36 percent of its workforce.

A WLUK-TV report says the affected employees were notified Friday. After the layoffs the plant will still have 136 workers.

The company blames the job cuts on a declining market.

The city’s community development director is Evan Wendlandt. He said the layoffs came as a surprise, but the city is ready to help the displaced workers. He said there are resources available to help with workforce development, training and job search.

Grede has 14 foundries in the U.S., including four in Wisconsin.
