Broadwind Energy announces layoffs in Manitowoc

MANITOWOC, Wis. (WBAY) - Broadwind Energy has announced it is laying off workers at Broadwind Towers in Manitowoc.

The company's corporate communications director could not comment on the number of workers impacted by the decision. Joni Konstantelos did say that Broadwind eliminated two weekend shifts.

"The layoff has nothing to do with the quality and dedication of our team. Unfortunately it is the result of what we believe to be a temporary pause in the market and orders in the Midwest," Konstantelos said in a statement to Action 2 News.

Broadwind Energy makes wind towers, gears and replacement parts for clean tech, energy, and infrastructure markets.
