WEST FARGO - West Fargo-based wind tower producer DMI terminated about 100 workers Monday citing declining customer demand.

Monday's job cuts, combined with another 60 made in January, leave about 200 people employed at the West Fargo plant, said Belinda Forknell, marketing and public relations spokesperson for DMI.

"The credit market is just continuing to affect wind energy developers. They are not able to secure project financing and, of course, that's delaying the development of their projects," said Forknell.

The job cuts represent a combination of full- and part-time workers, she said.

"What we did was eliminate our weekend shift," Fornkell said.
