GOTHENBURG, Neb. (AP) - A major operation is shutting down for a small west-central Nebraska town.
Ohio-based company Parker Hannifin announced Thursday that its Baldwin Filters plant in Gothenburg will close in October 2018. The plant employs around 140 people.
The company said production will be transferred to the company's plant in Kearney.
Parker said its acquisition of Baldwin's parent company Clarcor created excess and redundant manufacturing capacity. Parker also said the Baldwin plant workers will receive severance, re-employment opportunities and outplacement support.
Parker spokesman Aidan Gormley said the closure won't affect the Parker sealing products plant in Gothenburg.
