Sauer-Danfoss to cut up to 15 percent of its East Hills Business Park workforce

July 17, 2009

More job cuts are coming for a Lawrence manufacturer that has struggled with the downturn in the construction industry.

Officials with Sauer-Danfoss announced Friday that they will cut 10 percent to 15 percent of their workforce at their East Hills Business Park plant.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many workers would lose their jobs, but based on past known job totals for the plant, the reductions likely would mean a loss of 10 to 20 jobs at the facility.

The company makes transmission parts for various pieces of construction equipment. The cuts are at least the second round of layoffs for the plant this year. In January, it announced it was cutting up to 20 jobs at the plant.
