Workers laid off from Brown-Minneapolis Tank in Elma
Elma, Wash. – Less than a week after offering tours during Showcase Grays Harbor, Brown Minneapolis Tank plans to layoff just under 50 employees from their Western Washington location.
Co-manager of the local Worksource Grays Harbor office, Ron Schmidt tells us “We were notified that Brown-Minneapolis Tank will be closing at the Satsop Business Park.” A rapid response meeting will be held for former employees on October 2nd at 10am and 2pm across the street from the facility. Schmidt added “to insure that employees know more about their unemployment insurance as well as some of the other benefits that will be custom for them.”
Human Resources Manager Debbie Eggleston said from the BMT corporate office that they could not comment at this time. The company has locations in Ohio, New Mexico, and Canada as well as the former turbine building of the defunct Satsop power plant.
