Greenheck officials announce layoffs

SCHOFIELD (WAOW)--Officials at Greenheck Fan Corporation announce 49 layoffs at it's Schofield facility.

The layoffs are effective April 2nd. Company officials blame the weakened construction market. The company makes industrial and commercial ventilation systems.

In a press release, Vice President Aaron Gotham says that the market for Greenheck's products has declined 50-percent since the start of the recession.

Company officials maintain that the layoffs are not related to the company's expansion into Mexico announced earlier this week.

Greenheck laid off 400 workers at the Schofield plant in 2009.
