Turbine Blade Plant to stay open

Aberdeen plant to stay open after facing uncertainty


The Associated Press - July 24, 2018

ABERDEEN, S.D. - A wind turbine blade manufacturer has secured a multi-year order to keep its South Dakota plant in business after facing closure and announcing layoffs.

The Argus Leader reports that Ohio-based Molded Fiber Glass's new deal finalized last month will help its Aberdeen plant stay open for years. The manufacturer is hiring about 50 more employees after more than 400 workers were at risk of losing their jobs following an announcement of potential layoffs in December.

Senior Vice President David Giovannini says he can't disclose the identity of the client or the terms of the deal. But he says the multi-year order is a positive step forward for Molded Fiber Glass employees.

Giovannini says the news has brought welcome relief and the company is busy hiring and training new employees.
