CNH in Burlington lays off 30

Christinia Crippes, The Hawk Eye, Burlington, Iowa –

Case New Holland Corporate Communications said Wednesday its Burlington plant has temporarily laid off about 30 employees.

The number amounts to about 4.4 percent of its current staff of 680 employees.

The length of time the employees will be laid off is not known but is expected to be brief, according to a company spokesperson.

CNH added a new draper head line at the Burlington plant in 2010, which was expected to add 198 jobs.

The number has since been adjusted, and the business’ new line is now expected to be responsible for about 350 new positions by the end of this year.

Four different models of draper heads are being manufactured in Burlington for Case IH and New Holland combines.

The draper head models will be a 30-footer, 35-footer, 40-footer and 45-footer.

In May 2010, CNH received a $4.9 million tax benefits package from the Iowa Department of Economic Development with the intention of creating jobs over three years for its draper head line.
