WILLIAMSBURG, Iowa — The Associated Press reported June 24 that Kinze, an ag equipment manufacturer of planters and grain carts, says it will be laying off 215 office and factory workers as a result of slowing business impacted by low grain prices.

Earlier this year, the company released a statement that said it had implemented a 30-hour work week in order to avoid permanent cuts, but the Associated Press says the company now reports current demand doesn't support full staffing.

Remaining workers will return to a 40-hour work week.
