Kolbe & Kolbe lays off 334 workers in Wausau

WAUSAU (WKOW) -- Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Co., a business that makes doors and windows, laid off 334 workers.

Company president, Michael Salsieder said Tuesday that the layoffs are a result of the continuing decline in the residential and commercial construction industry.

He says Kolbe & Kolbe hopes to bring back as many employees as possible this spring, when it's hoped the economy will improve and the usual winter building slowdown will be over.

Wausau Mayor Jim Tipple says Kolbe & Kolbe has been a good corporate citizen, and he's confident the company will overcome any financial setbacks.
