FILLMORE, Ind. – Dixie Chopper has temporarily laid off some of its employees as of Monday, Nov. 19. Specific numbers laid off were not disclosed.

The decision was not an easy decision but it was necessary for the continued success of the company,” Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Bradley M. Craig said in a prepared statement provided to the Greencastle (Ind.) Banner Graphic newspaper.

“The doors at Dixie Chopper are open and will remain open,” he added. Dixie Chopper has every intention of calling back as many of the affected employees during the beginning of 2014, company officials said.

The layoffs have come as the Dixie Chopper management team, which was put in place back in June, is reorganizing the company “to ensure a strong financial position in the marketplace, optimal production levels, reduced overhead costs, and a streamlined shipping process.”
