The Kohler Co. has reduced its non-manufacturing workforce in Sheboygan County by 84 employees.

Some of the employees were offered early retirement and Kohler said in a statement the company will provide “full support to all associates affected by this difficult news.” The company also said it regularly reviews its operations and the latest cuts were part of that move.

Earlier this year, the company said it would relocate its small engines division from Wisconsin to Hattiesburg, Miss. About 325 positions were eliminated in that move, but the affected workers were offered different positions in the area. The company said the recent job cuts were not related to the relocation.

Kohler has 7,500 employees in Wisconsin.
