Dynapower blames sequester cuts for layoffs

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A South Burlington manufacturer says it has been forced to cut jobs due to earlier federal budget cuts.

Dynapower makes power system transformers.

Company officials say they laid off 30 of their 230 employees last week due in part to a tightening of military contracts resulting from the federal sequester.

The increasing cost of copper has also impacted the company's profitability.

But Dynapower president Adam Knudsen says their core remains strong and two of the people laid off have already been hired back.
