GE Appliances has announced it will eliminate more than 150 positions at its Bloomington Production plant either through early retirement or layoffs.

GE said the main culprit for the layoffs is a lull in demand for side-by-side refrigerators.

GE said beginning Oct. 31, roughly 160 of the plant’s nearly 500 production positions will be impacted by the decision.

GE says that demand for side-by-side refrigerators has declined more than 30 percent since 2010.
