80 more layoffs at local Timken plant

The Sylvania Timken plant will have an additional 80 layoffs effective by the end of this month, say company officials.
The dramatic worldwide economic decline is the reason for the layoffs.
Plant manager David Burke declined to comment on the layoffs. He rather referred all questions to Lorrie Paul Crum, the manager of Global Media & Strategic Communications for the Timken Company, headquartered in Canton, Ohio.
Crum said the difficult decision to layoff employees reflects the state of the overall economy, and the broad-based, global declines in the company’s markets.
“We’re doing what we have to do,” Crum said. “We face the brutal fact that if demands are down, we have to adjust for that.”
“We are doing what we can,” she said.
Crum said the overall Timken company is strong.
She also said that Timken believes in the Sylvania plant. The Timken Foundation of Canton recently awarded the city fire department money for a fire tower training facility.
