BRADFORD-ON-AVON, England (Feb. 22)—Avon Rubber & Plastics Inc. has recalled 150 workers, who had been laid off temporarily at two of its automotive product plants in Michigan. Reduced automotive market volumes in January had forced the company to lay off 110 workers at its Cadillac plant and another 40 at its facility in Manton, according to a group spokeswoman. The U.S. company, a subsidiary of Avon Rubber P.L.C., did, however, make 30 permanent job cuts in in December, due to production efficiency gains, she added.
