KENNETT, Mo.—Parker Hannifin Corp.'s Hose Products Division will close its manufacturing facility based in Kennett.
The firm said in a WARN notice to the Missouri's Department of Economic Development that the plant will close on Sept. 30. Production will be transferred to other existing locations in the U.S. by the end of September.
"This was not an easy decision to make given the impact it has on our team members," Parker said in the notice. "However, this was the only viable option as the demand for the products manufactured at the Kennett facility can no longer support the operating costs."
The move impacts 92 full-time employees, who received written notification on June 4, according to the WARN notice.
The site produces yarn reinforced rubber hose and will continue its manufacturing and assembly operation until all product lines are operational in their new locations, Parker said in an emailed statement.
"We are grateful for our team members hard work and dedication, and the consolidation in no way reflects their performance," Parker said in the email. "We are committed to easing the transition for all affected team members and we will be offering employment opportunities across Parker, as well as separation packages that include severance pay and outplacement support."
