Benco cutting jobs in Belle Plaine

BELLE PLAINE (KWWL) -- The troubled automotive industry has led to layoffs at a car parts factory in Belle Plaine.

City Administrator Bill Daily says Benco Manufacturing, Belle Plaine's largest employer, will lay off about 30 workers. It may not sound like a lot but 30 jobs lost is a lot in a town with fewer than 3,000 people.

Benco makes auto parts and blames a decline in demand for the job cuts.
