Federal-Mogul has announced that 50 workers at its Smithville location will soon be without employment, as the company moves forward with the second round of layoffs in two years in Smithville.
According to information released by the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, on March 21, Federal-Mogul notified the department that 50 employees would be laid off beginning March 14 through April 30.
The employees are not represented by a collective bargaining agreement, the statement says.
In 2012, the Smithville location was shaken with the announcement of a large layoff of nearly 200 employees, with the majority of those positions being sent to Mexico, in what the company called an effort to reduce costs.
Federal-Mogul Corporation is a $6.8 billion global supplier of products to manufacturers of automotive, light commercial, heavy-duty and off-highway vehicles, as well as in power generation, aerospace, marine, rail and industrial.
