CITY OF PEWAUKEE - The head of HUSCO International confirmed Friday that a new plant the company plans to build in Maquoketa, Iowa will likely take some local jobs with it.



HUSCO, which makes hydraulic controls for the off-highway and automotive markets, plans to have its third North American facility up and running by the end of 2008, said chairman and CEO Agustin Ramirez.

While the company’s Whitewater facility will probably be unaffected by the project, Ramirez said some of the 300 plant workers in City of Pewaukee will likely see their jobs move to Iowa.
