(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — Employees returned to the job for a local manufacturing company.

Snap-tite Hose announced on Wednesday that all of its 68 furloughed workers have returned to work, and the company continues to operate a full weekly production schedule.

“Like most businesses across the country, we have been faced with uncertain, challenging times, but through the hard times, our commitment to our dedicated employees has never once wavered,” said Jeffrey Schad, CEO of Snap-tite Hose. “Our employees are the backbone of this company, and without them, Snap-tite Hose would not be able to provide high-quality, high-performance hoses to municipal fire departments across our Commonwealth.
