Ariens is ending some of its second, third and weekend shift operations at its manufacturing facility in Brillion, Wis., according to a June 6 report from Wisconsin Public Radio. "No other changes are planned," the company said in a statement. "We understand this rebalance directly affects employees and have provided paid time for them to apply for open roles."

Ariens did not give the number of employees being affected, but Brillion Mayor Mike Smith estimated in the report that 700 people worked for the company in manufacturing and that the layoffs could affect between 200 and 500 people.
