Last year Bobcat in Litchfield laid off or moved 100 manufacturing jobs to Bismarck North Dakota.
But at the same time, KWLM reports Felling Trailers of Sauk Centre decided they wanted to expand, and Felling Shop Supervisor Tom Downs says they thought the conditions were right to come to Litchfield.
Downs worked for Bobcat in Litchfield for 12 years before coming to Felling. He says they’ve been very busy, and have openings for people with the right skills. Downs says about 37 people currently work at Felling Trailer in Litchfield, making semi, deck-over, air-tilt and ITI trailers such as a skid steer would ride on.
People interested in opportunities at Felling should email a resume on the Felling Trailers website or call 320-352-5239.
