INDEPENDENCE — On April 18, The Gazette received reports of another round of layoffs at the Med-Fit/Nautilus manufacturing plant in Independence.

Some company officials formerly in charge of public relations were among those cut, so The Gazette wasn’t able to reach anyone for comment on Friday. An e-mail to company owner Dean Sbragia was not returned.

The commercial fitness equipment company let go 33 people last month, bringing its workforce down to about 100 people. No information was available about the number in this latest round of layoffs.
