Walker Manufacturing Lays Off 30 in Harrisonburg

Posted: Updated:

HARRISONBURG, VA (AP) - Walker Manufacturing has laid off 30 workers at its plant in Harrisonburg.

A spokesman for Walker's parent, Tenneco Inc., tells media outlets that the layoffs are due to a drop in demand for products made at the plant.

Mike Alzamora says these products include mufflers, catalytic converters and other vehicle parts. The parts are sold to AutoZone, NAPA Auto Parts and other retail outlets.

He says the company hopes the layoffs won't be permanent.
