YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Workers at Parker Hannifin that are about to lose their jobs will be able to receive trade adjustment assistance.

In September, Parker Hannifin announced plans to shut down its Youngstown gear pump division. That closure, which would affect 130 workers, would take place over the next year and a half

The trade adjustment assistance would help workers look for new jobs, provide training and assistance with health care premiums, according to the company.

The factory makes hydraulic gear pumps, primarily for use in heavy equipment for the agriculture, construction, military and mining industries.

Parker Hannifin previously cited a weak market as a reason for the plant’s closure.
