The U.S. subsidiary of Dutch manufacturer Cordstrap told state officials last week it plans to eliminate 36 jobs at its Racine County facility.
The state Department of Workforce Development released a Feb. 22 letter from Cordstrap USA Inc. on Tuesday. The letter says the company plans to cut 31 jobs by May 1 and another five jobs by June 1. Cordstrap’s facility is located at 2000 S. Sylvania Ave., #101 in Yorkville.
Cordstap makes one-way polyester cargo strapping and securing systems. The positions to be eliminated included a variety of operational, engineering and supervisor jobs, including the plant manager. Reached by phone, a company representative declined to say if the cuts were part of a workforce reduction or plant closing.
