Area Manufacturer Downsizes

By  | 

Another stateline manufacturer is downsizing eliminating more than a dozen jobs.

Gunite says 15 positions will be eliminated through retirement or attrition. The move is an effort to save money. The company makes brake drums, hubs and wheels for tractor-trailers.

Early reports indicated that Gunite may have been moving to Elkhart Indiana, but the company says Rockford is their number one market and they have no intention of leaving.

Gunite has been in Rockford for 150 years.
