GE Oil and Gas lays off 93 at Wisconsin natural gas compressor plant

OSHKOSH, Wis. - About one-third of the employees that work at GE Oil and Gas in Oshkosh have been laid off. That's 93 of company's 270 employees at the location.
Shane Reph, general manager for the North America Division of GE, said the employees were laid off on July 23, but they will be paid through September 21.
The GE Gas and Oil facility in Oshkosh makes high speed compressors. The compressors are used mainly in the natural gas industry, at refineries and along pipelines.
Reph said there is simply not enough demand for their products right now and that companies are not spending money. He said the layoffs are permanent and include both salaried and hourly workers.
