A decision by Kohler Company to close its Sheboygan County engine division is eliminating 600 jobs there.
The small engine manufacturing company says it is moving the work to Mississippi. Kohler says all of the workers will be offered alternative positions. It is investing 15-million dollars at its new operation in Hattiesburg. The union says 280 production jobs and 320 administrative positions are being cut here, but no employee is being forced out.
