150 Jobs Lost At Press Maker
A day before the National Association of Purchasing Management
reported its manufacturing index hit a 10-year low this week,
Goss Graphic Systems told workers it would undertake a
“manufacturing capacity realignment” that would cost 150
employees their jobs at its Cedar Rapids, Iowa, plant.
In a prepared statement released Wednesday, the press maker said
only that it acted “in response to a shift in product mix.” Calls
to Goss’ Westmont, Ill., headquarters were not immediately
A source at the plant who insisted on anonymity said a third of
the hourly shop workers and some office staffers lost their jobs
without notice or explanation.
