WINNIPEG — Phillips and Temro Industries is dismissing fears that a second manufacturing plant it owns in Winnipeg will suffer the same fate as the first — pending closure and the transfer of jobs to the United States and China.
“They don’t have any plans to change it,” company spokeswoman Mary Ann McCauley said of the Minnesota-based firm’s Cowl Silencing facility, which manufactures industrial engine intake and exhaust-silencing systems.
“It (relocating the operations) is not on the table.”
The company is in the process of winding down operations at its Winnipeg heating products plant, which manufactures things like block heaters, car warmers and battery warmers for automotive industry and transferring the 170 jobs to sister plants in Eden Prairie, Minn. and China.
