Viking Range cuts more workers
GREENWOOD — Viking Range Corp. says a shortage of orders forced the company to lay of 20 more people this past week.
Viking has slashed at least 347 jobs since April 2008, almost a quarter of its workforce.
The cuts have come in various departments of the Greenwood-based appliance maker.
Bill Crump, director of governmental affairs and executive assistant to the president, said in a statement that these latest layoffs were in manufacturing.
He said that he hopes the positions will be restored if business improves.
Four employees of The Alluvian, a hotel in downtown Greenwood owned by Viking, were also laid off recently, according to the Greenwood Commonwealth newspaper.
