FLETCHER, N.C. (AP) -- A Michigan-based manufacturing company will cut about 100 jobs from its facilities in Henderson County because of high energy costs and a slumping economy.
The Times-News of Hendersonville reported Wednesday that BorgWarner Thermal Systems will soon layoff between about 70 and 100 employees at its Fletcher facility and its Turbo and Emissions Systems division in Arden.
The decision is part of a 16 percent cut in the company's local work force.
Employees at the Fletcher plant were told of the layoffs last Friday. Additional employees are expected to be notified this week.
BorgWarner develops engine temperature control products for the truck and sport utility vehicle market.
