JONESVILLE, Mich. Hillsdale Automotive LLC, which produces precision machine components for auto manufacturing and other industries, will trim two-thirds of its work force by the end of 2007. Jonesville is in Hillsdale County about 65 miles northwest of Toledo.
The plant, which is part of Michigan-based EaglePicher Corp., will furlough 100 of 155 workers in production cuts prompted by reduced orders from auto plants and the end of several key contracts, spokesman Tina Kozak said.
