WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Kolbe & Kolbe is laying off over 300 employees, Monday.

According to a news release from the company, most of the affected production and office employees are located at the Wausau facility.

Michael Salsieder, Kolbe’s president, stated that “the company anticipates the lay-off to be a temporary measure, intending to call back as many of the workers as possible in early spring of 2010... While it is our desire to recall as many of the laid-off employees as possible in the early spring, the precise number will be determined by the resiliency of the economy and its ability to return to a normalcy that will result in sustained levels of sales revenues to justify employment levels we have previously experienced.”

The company has locations in Wausau, Manawa, Chicago and Fort Collins, CO.
