Demand for foundry's products shrinks as auto sector slumps

By Vince Luecke

TELL CITY – ThyssenKrupp Waupaca is eliminating 120 jobs as demand for the cars and trucks built with the parts made at its Tell City foundry shrinks amid the national economic slowdown.

Personnel Manager Ed Zellers said the cuts were announced Thursday morning and will affect approximately 120 employees. Like other automotive-related suppliers, Waupaca is coping with declining demand for brake drums, disc brakes and the range of other products it produces for the automotive, truck and agricultural markets.
