MERRILL, Wis. (WSAW) — The future for the more than 140 workers who lost their jobs at Semco Windows and Doors in Merrill is looking a little brighter.

Not only are there events coming up where they can meet with potential employers, we are learning the surrounding business communities are also trying to help.
Sandy Erickson, who used to work at Semco, says she knows the owner did everything he could to save the company, and despite being devastated, she’s optimistic about what lies ahead.
“Knowing that I’ll never be back in that building again, it’s a heart breaker,” Erickson said through tears.
She dedicated 31 years to her job at Semco.
