The Vestas wind energy company plans to hire more than 100 workers to build towers after laying off hundred of workers in Colorado.
The company said Wednesday it will retool its tower plant in Pueblo to fulfill new contracts. The agreement is expected to create more than 100 jobs by the end of next month.
Vestas reduced its Colorado workforce from 1,800 workers to 1,100 in 2012.
There are two upcoming job fairs in Pueblo and Colorado Springs.
Friday's event will take place at the Pueblo Community College from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.
On Saturday, another fair will be held in Colorado Springs at the Double Tree on Cheyenne Mountain Rd. from 8 a.m. until 12 p.m.
