Ariens Co. usually switches from lawn maintenance equipment to making snow blowers this time of year. But, president Dan Ariens says the company will be manufacturing both equipment lines this fall. Ariens says that's created an immediate need for workers, especially those with powder coating, welding, machining and assembly skills. He says the jobs will be temporary, with plans to convert them to permanent positions.

The Appleton Post-Crescent ( ) says Ariens has hired 200 people in the past year. It currently employs 1,335 workers in Brillion.
