Pella Corporation informed workers that they would be releasing 198 employees, most of whom work in Pella. Corporate Public Relations Manager Kathy Krafka-Harkema told KNIA/KRLS, although Pella Corp tried to keep as many workers on the payroll through the economic downturn as possible, a decision was made to release the workers due to the continued world financial woes effects. She added they are working with state, and private industries to help place the former employees. Pella Corporation informed workers of the layoffs Wednesday morning.
