Kinze Manufacturing to host job fair after recent layoffs

Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSBURG (KWWL) -

Kinze Manufacturing will host a job placement fair and employee assistance workshops to support employees who were impacted by recent layoffs.

In a news release, the company said they will host a voluntary fair at the Kinze Innovation Center on July 9 to give former employees the ability to interview for positions with other companies.

The company had to lay off 215 workers as business slowed due to the impact of low grain prices on farmer purchases.

Last month, the company released a statement that says it had implemented a 30-hour work week to avoid permanent cuts, but current demand for its products didn't support full staffing.

Employee assisted workshops will also be held on July 6 and July 8 at the Kinze Innovation Center.
