A local manufacturer has laid off 30 employees in recent days
A local manufacturer has laid off 30 employees in recent days. Momentum Manufacturing Group (formerly NSA Industries) laid off workers from their three locations in St. Johnsbury and Lyndon, and Groveton, N.H. Matthew Smith, president of the MMG Industrial division, said the cuts impacted both their direct laborers from the factory floor and some support and office workers. Smith said there had been a slowdown in the company’s order book, primarily related to consumer goods. Smith said MMG had been at about 325 employees between the four locations before the layoffs, so this represents just under 10% of the company’s workforce. MMG had notified state labor department officials of the layoffs.
