But over the past few years, the company found it to be much more cost efficient to buy parts from outside manufacturers.
That, along with a decrease in rail car traffic has forced Norfolk Southern to close the foundry, and furlough 14 employees.
But this isn't the first of the N-S cutbacks. [PRE-PRO page 1]
On January 26, the company offered 1,200 of its employees an early retirement. Three days later, NS cut 550 union workers system-wide.
Then in April, 400 more employees were let go. [PRE-PRO page 2]
On August 8, Norfolk Southern fired 228 Roanoke Car Shop workers.
And just ten days later, the company offered another non-union buyout.
Finally, back in September, 215 rail team members furloughed, many of which live in Roanoke. [END Pre-pro]
