Stoughton Trailers will rehire 300 employees that were previously laid off by the end of the year
, according to published reports.

The trailer manufacturer said it has plans to bring back employees that were laid off, as the economy picks back up and business is showing some signs of growth, according to reports by Channel3000.com.

Channel3000.com reports that the manufacturer previously employed about 1,500 workers, but that number got down below 300 with the recession. The company expects to ramp up production starting next year. With the uptick, the company believes production will grow from 30 units to 150 units per week, the publication reports.

The Stoughton, Wis.-based headquarters houses all of the component manufacturing operations for rear door frames, ladder assemblies and upper coupler assemblies. From fabrication of subassemblies to final assembly of all Stoughton dry vans, this facility has the capacity to produce more than 20,000 finished units per year, the company says on its web site.
