190 more workers will be out of work in Two Rivers, Thermo Fisher closes 2nd site


TWO RIVERS, WI (WTAQ) - Around 190 additional workers in Two Rivers will be looking for jobs next year. The second of two manufacturing plants owned by Thermo Fisher Scientific, the lab equipment maker is closing.  Earlier this year, the company said it was closing its steel manufacturing plant by year’s end and moving the jobs to Mexico. Around 120 workers were affected.  Jobs from the now closing wood manufacturing plant are being moved to Texas.  “Our leadership team continuously evaluates our business operations in an effort to increase efficiencies and improve our global competitive position," Thermo Fisher Scientific Director of public relations Ron O'Brien said in the press release. The company says about 150 non-manufacturing jobs will remain in Two Rivers.
