MILWAUKEE (AP) - Joy Global Inc. is shutting down its heavy welding and fabrication operations in Milwaukee, resulting in the loss of about 130 jobs.

The mining equipment manufacturer announced the decision to employees Wednesday.

Joy Global says most of the employees affected by the shutdown already were on layoff.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/24OOVFN ) reports the rest of the company’s Milwaukee area operations are not affected.

The company says work previously handled by the Milwaukee heavy fabrication and welding departments will be covered by other Joy Global manufacturing and service facilities, and alliance partners.
