MOUNT VERNON — It has been confirmed that 41 layoffs took place last week at PACS Industries.

Area Development Foundation Director Steve Waers said he was finally able to talk to PACS principal owner Bruce Dallas, who confirmed the layoffs occurred.

“He said he hopes the layoffs were just temporary. The orders were there, but some ‘reshuffling’ took place in the company,” Waers said.

Waers was not sure the number was exact. He didn’t have any details of what the reshuffling entailed.

He also said he had no information about layoffs in December.

As of last June, the company employed about 150 people.
