Thirty-seven employees lost their jobs on Tuesday when Infratrol Manufacturing Corp. in New Berlin closed its business.
The company, which filed for Chapter 128 receivership, notified state and local officials of the closure and layoffs on Tuesday. Receiver Todd Esser, of Milwaukee-based Todd Esser & Associates, and Infratrol president Steven Onsager were not available for comment.
Located at 2500 S. 162nd St., Infratrol had been designing and building engineered-to-order industrial heat processing equipment since 1956.
In response to recent layoffs at area manufacturers like East Troy-based Erik Buell Racing last month, a Walworth County Manufacturing Job Fair is set for Tuesday, May 19. The fair is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Walworth County Job Center, 400 County Road H, in the South Building at Gateway Technical College in Elkhorn.
