Nearly 300 Longview area residents will be losing their jobs. Trinity Industries Inc. is laying off workers at its rail tank car production facility.
According to Nancy Farrar, a Trinity spokesperson the employees were let go because of a downturn in the tank car sector.
John Stroud, Executive Director of Longview Economic Development Corp., said that 850 workers will still be working at the facility.
