Brillion Iron Works, a division of Evansville, Ind.-based Accuride Corp., says it is temporarily cutting 46 jobs on April 1.
The company said softening in the global mining and construction markets is behind the move, however, it does expect those sectors to improve later this year, which means it will restaff to meet production demands, said Timothy Weir, a company spokesman. The affected workers would be the first to be recalled.
Once its layoffs are finished, Brillion Iron Works will employ 445 people, which includes 385 production workers and 60 salaried staff.
Brillion Iron Works in August cut 198 jobs, saying that move was driven by slowing demand it its core industrial markets, which includes industrial, agricultural, construction, and oil and gas.
