Local News

BROWNWOOD, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Kohler Company in Brownwood is laying off 223 employees as they eliminate some of their manufacturing processes. 

The company’s older conveyor cast process, along with two smaller casting processes, will be retired because the operations will be moved to existing Kohler plants better equipped to make these products. 

All 223 affected employees received 60 days notice on April 9 that they would be laid off. 

“The Brownwood site’s plastics operations, as well as one-piece casting and tank production in vitreous operations, are not impacted and will continue to operate as normal,” a press release reveals. 

The press release says that despite the layoffs, Kohler’s business remains strong across the United States.
