A northeast Iowa factory is shutting down, tossing dozens of people out of work. Monona Wire is closing its plant in Edgewood that makes wire harnesses for vehicles. Gus Saros is a spokesman for the plant’s parent company in Dekalb, Illinois. He says Monona Wire’s orders from another company trickled to a halt and that’s hurt business.The shutdown in Edgewood will be effective April first — 82 jobs are being eliminated. The company also has operations in Monona and Wauzeka, Wisconsin. Saros says they may be able to find some Edgewood workers jobs in Monona.He says they’re also working with a couple of other northeast Iowa companies that may be able to help the displaced workers.State and local officials will meet with the company’s workers tomorrow to let them know some of their options.
