Blade concern announces big layoffs

Danish wind turbine blade manufacturer LM Glasfiber has laid off nearly 400 workers in its Danish factories. On Jutland, 300 lost their jobs because several customers have postponed their orders, says LM's sales and marketing director, Anders D Christensen, adding that the current crisis of turbine maker NEG Micon has played a role in the layoffs. LM has closed its factory on the island of Langeland, where 95 were fired, because the facility had become too small to make large blades -- the most sought after product from the company. Meanwhile managing director Flemming Bjerregaard quit, due to disagreements over the company's future. Aksel Skovgaard has taken over the position.
