Eaton announces plan to close Hutchinson plant by October; 100 jobs would be affected

Employees at Hutchinson’s Eaton Hydraulics plant learned Wednesday afternoon that the plant will close by October, eliminating about 100 local jobs.

The closure comes just 10½ years after city, county and state leaders rallied with plant employees to keep the manufacturing plant at 3401 E. Fourth Ave. open – though with the loss of a significant number of jobs at the time – after the multinational corporation announced plans to move local production to Mexico.

With the current closure, production of components made in Hutchinson will also move to Queretaro, Mexico, said Kelly Jasko, director of communications for Eaton’s Industrial Sector. She said she didn’t know what volume of production would be relocated.

The chamber will reach out to the company, said Kirk Johnson, interim CEO of the Hutchinson / Reno County Chamber of Commerce, “to seek guidance whether the decision is final or if a potential strategy can be employed. Should the decision be final, we’ll offer assistance and resources to the affected employees.”

1. It's only 100 jobs. No big deal to The Con. His sights are set on BUG co's whose decisions affect

Thousands of workers, or at least close to 1,000. I bet this move is ignored!

2. The migration of companies and outsourcing of jobs to slave wage countries will continue

regardless of drump's grandstanding.
