Franke has cut 70-80 positions
Franke Consumer Products Inc. has taken a hit in this economic recession.
The Ruston-based sink manufacturer, which distributes stainless steel and granite sinks to retail establishments, recently added a few more layoffs to its list.
Since around this time last year, the company is down between 70 and 80 employees, said Ryan Williams, vice president of human resources.
He attributes the layoffs to a decrease in demand for sinks stemming from the recession.
