Engineered Machine Products Recalling Laid-Off Workers

Some of the people laid off from Engineered Machine Products in Escanaba are on their way back.

The company says it could be up to 15 of the 39 people who are laid off at the moment.

There’s some new business coming in.

They just got a contract to make a transmission valve for the Ford Fusion.

There’s also a new contract for rear engine covers for a Ford engine.

Earlier this year, every employee’s work week was cut from 40 hours to 32 because of a drop in business.

Company officials say the employees working on the new contracts will go back to 40-hour weeks.
