S&S Cycle of Viola, Wisconsin announced layoffs due to declining sales. A total of 60 employees were either laid off or offered voluntary separation, a total of 195 employees remain at the company’s 2 locations in Viola and LaCrosse.
Company President Brett Smith announced Friday that 60 workers have been cut this month through voluntary separation and layoffs. “This was a very, very hard decision personally,” Smith said. “People I’ve known for years were impacted.” … All but two of the cuts were made at the company’s Viola site rather than the La Crosse location, Smith said.
S&S recently had a very successful 50th Anniversary celebration hosting an estimated 28,000 motorcycle enthusiasts. S&S builds some great engines, the new X-Wedge is already certified by the EPA for the 2010 Tier 2 standards, hope they get things turned around soon.
