HyLife has reduced shift hours by 25 percent as it still seeks a buyer after entering into Chapter 11 bankruptcy last week.
HyLife Public Relations and Communications Manager Stacey Ashley stated Tuesday that HyLife is still actively seeking a buyer and that “an end date for Windom has not been set.”
Ashley informed that eligible employees have had Minnesota Unemployment Insurance and top-up options shared with them.
“We understand how difficult this situation can be,” said Ashley. “In an effort to be transparent, we have shared numerous updates with our team on the plant sale process. Throughout this process, we are committed to working within the framework from the Department of Labor (DOL) and the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). We have also connected with the State Dislocated Worker Program.”
