Vertex announces layoffs
WILMINGTON — Vertex Railcar Corp. announced Friday it would temporarily lay off “a small portion” of its workforce.
“Some business decisions are difficult to make but they must be made nonetheless,” Vertex CEO Donald Croteau said in a statement. “We truly value our teammates and genuinely appreciate the impact that this announcement may have on the small portion of them that are affected. Vertex would like to stress that this reduction is temporary in nature. In fact, most of the small percentage of people impacted already have the return date for them to come back to work. We look forward to seeing them and will strive to further reduce the time away as much as possible.”
