Aberdeen plant laying off nearly 100 workers

Posted: Updated:

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Molded Fiber Glass is laying off one-fourth of its workforce in Aberdeen.

Plant manager Dave Giovannini says 92 people are losing their jobs. About 370 people worked at the plant.

Giovannini cites a drop in orders for wind turbine blades related to the uncertainty about the future of a federal wind energy production tax credit.

Employees being laid off are getting a financial package that includes a health care benefit and some profit sharing.
