EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - A high-tech firm in Eau Claire is about to cut another 150 jobs.

Hutchinson Technology confirmed Wednesday that the layoffs would be complete by this fall.

The company designs and makes small components for computer disk drives. It’s based in Hutchinson Minnesota, and it had up to 2,500 employees at its Eau Claire location since it opened almost 18 years ago.

The workforce will drop below 600 once the latest round of layoffs is complete.

Hutchinson has been moving more of its assembly work to a plant it owns in Thailand.
