Vestas Wind Systems plans to hire 100 new workers at its tower facility in Pueblo, Colo., before the end of the first quarter, the company said. The news comes after the company announced layoffs of 10% of its 1,100-person workforce in the state. Vestas said its move to add and eliminate jobs is in line with its strategy to increase or decrease its workforce to respond to market demands. The company said it plans to provide 4 to 5 gigawatts of wind generation capacity worldwide and employ 16,000 around the world by the end of the year.
