A Minnesota-based manufacturer with locations in both Auburn and Falls City has told employees to expect layoffs next week.
Fast Global Solutions, a company that makes products ranging from airline ground support equipment to agricultural sprayers, confirmed that it plans to cut 10-15% of its workforce across all of its locations.
The company did not give a reason for the job cuts or provide any other details.
Fast Global Solutions has had a plant in Falls City since 1989. It opened the Auburn location last year, setting up shop in the former Ariens Company manufacturing plant.
According to the Falls City Economic Development and Growth Enterprise, the company employs 85 people there, making it one of the city's largest employers. The plant in Auburn employs 143 people, according to the Auburn Economic Development Council, which makes it the town's largest for-profit employer.
