Hino to lay off temporary workers at Williamstown plant
WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. -- Hino Motors Manufacturing USA plans to cut production at its Williamstown plant and lay off temporary workers.
Hino spokesman Sandy Ring said the cuts are because of unexpectedly soft sales in the fourth quarter.
Ring said the number of layoffs hasn't been determined and that the cuts are expected to occur at the end of the month.
Permanent workers won't be affected.
Ring said the company expects to resume full production "in the near term."
