Koch Industries Works To Cut 150 Wichita Jobs

WICHITA, Kan. _ Koch Industries is cutting 150 jobs at its Wichita headquarters through attrition and layoffs.

The company announced yesterday that the work force reduction
started in November.

More than 2,000 people work at Koch's headquarters in northeast
Wichita.

Spokeswoman Melissa Cohlmia blamed the cuts on the ``current economic environment'' and decreased demand for Koch's products,
which include petroleum, chemicals and paper products.

Cohlmia said Koch doesn't have a hiring freeze and noted about
three dozen openings are posted on the company's Web site.
