Dickten & Masch LLC will lay off workers and transfer equipment from its Lake Geneva, Wis., site to plants in Ankeny, Iowa; Hattiesburg, Miss.; and Nashotah, said Chief Executive Officer and President Randall Perry in an Aug. 1 letter to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.
The injection molder is based in Nashotah.
The machinery will be moved by Jan. 31, Perry said in the letter. Some 48 workers will be laid off, although some may move to other locations.
Employees of the Trostel SEG Cast Urethane operation in the same Lake Geneva facility will not be affected.
No more information was provided. ``Everything we know is in that letter,'' said Rose Lynch, head of communications for the state agency.
Dickten & Masch recently purchased two sister companies, Techniplas Inc. and Trostel Specialty Elastomers Group. Private equity group Everett Smith Group Ltd. had owned all three companies.
