MADISON (WKOW) -- Sub-Zero/Wolf says it will add a second production shift at its Wisconsin and Arizona facilities. The kitchen appliance maker says an increased demand for products prompted the increase in production.
Second shifts will be added at the company's Fitchburg and Phoenix factories. Earlier this year, Sub-Zero cut its workforce and production because of the economic recession.
"For the first time in more than a year, home sales and home remodeling projects are steadily picking up, and our distributors and dealers are reporting increased interest and demand for our appliances," said Chuck Verri, Sub-Zero and Wolf's vice president for human resources. "We've been in this business for more than 60 years, and we've successfully weathered other economic downturns. We're cautiously optimistic that the industry will continue to recover, and so we've positioned ourselves to rebound quickly as we come out of this recessionary period."
Sub-Zero/Wolf is calling back nearly 40 hourly employees at its Phoenix factory. In Fitchburg, 165 employees are being called back to work. Here in Wisconsin, the company plans to hire an additional 60 salaried positions. The hiring effort will take full effect in November for hourly employees and will continue over the next six months for salaried positions.
